illinois state fair grow with us

It is almost time for the Illinois State Fair to begin! The Twilight Parade route follows Sangamon Avenue on Thursday, August 11, 2022 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Parking that evening begins at 4:00 p.m.

Ridgely School is located one block south of the parade route and Gate 11 on 8th and 9th Street. The Ridgely PTA and staff will be parking cars on the playground each day of the fair. The price is $5.00. Our entrance, which is also close to the Main Gate, is located on the north side of the school on Percy Street. 

We hope you consider parking at Ridgely School if you are attending the Illinois State Fair this summer. Your support is greatly appreciated!
