Join us in skelebrating everything summer! We’re taking the party completely outdoors this year, and all the fun and festivities will take place ***ON THE LAWN AT THE WEST END OF OUR BUILDING! (the end farthest from Lemont Rd.)***
Think of it as the best big ol’ picnic you’ve ever been to! There’ll be lots of lawn to sprawl on — feel free to bring a picnic blanket, or add one to your pre-order to have it waiting for you at the door! Compact camp chairs are also welcome, but please, NO coolers, pets, strollers, oversized/obstructive seating, or outside food/drink.
PLEASE NOTE: ONLY THOSE 21+ WILL BE ADMITTED AFTER 7:30PM. Please bring a valid ID. This is for safety, security (and insurance) reasons. Thank you for understanding.
We have a lot of parking on-site, but strongly encourage cabbing/ride-sharing so everyone can imbibe responsibly 🙂
A limited number of tickets are available for pre-order, but we will also offer tickets at the door!
- $10 Adult admission (21+) — includes an exclusive, speckled stainless-steel cup while supplies last* (it’s different from the one in the image above — no glass on the grass!) — and WHEN YOU PREORDER your ticket, it also includes your first fill! A portion of the proceeds is donated to our non-profit partner, Hope For The Day. *Glasses are limited, but all preorders are GUARANTEED a glass and first fill!
- $5 Child/Minor admission (under 21) — includes unlimited freeze pops, 1 ticket for axe throwing (inflatable), and all ticket proceeds donated to our non-profit partner, Hope For The Day. Minors must be admitted before 7:30pm and accompanied by a 21+ adult at all times.
- CHILDREN AGE 3 AND UNDER GET IN FREE (no ticket necessary), but please note that strollers will not be allowed on the lawn (we will have a stroller parking area by the entrance).
- Optional add-on for pre-orders:
- SKB-branded picnic blanket ($15) — 52″ x 47″ Polyester fleece plaid with water-resistant PE backing. Folds up with Velcro® closure and attached handle for easy carrying. Supplies are very limited!
