Festival hours are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 31; and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 1. Admission is free.

Septemberfest takes place across the rolling grounds of the 40-acre Robert O. Atcher Municipal Center, with its weeping willow trees wrapped around a scenic pond, and winding trails that weave patrons through the different festival locations.

Village officials expect 250,000 people to converge on the festival grounds over its three-day run. Free shuttle bus routes make getting to and from the grounds fairly easy. Remote lots are located at Schaumburg and Conant high schools, Jane Addams Junior High School, and at street corners in various neighborhoods. Detailed information can be found on the village website, www.ci.schaumburg.il.us.

New this year is a drop-off site at the festival grounds. It is located on Lambert Drive, between Summit Drive and Ashcroft Court. There is no parking on festival grounds.
