How do I get to Feedback?
You’ve got options galore! Lincoln Park Zoo is located just north of downtown Chicago off of Lake Shore Drive at the Fullerton Parkway exit – so it’s easily accessible by car, bus, train, bike or foot. Parking is limited so we suggest taking public transportation.

  • Cabbin’ it? Expect your fare to be around $10-15 coming from downtown. The best drop-off area is on Stockton Drive between Webster and Dickens Avenues.
  • Taking advantage of public transit? The Armitage Station stop on both the Brown and Purple train lines is a one mile walk from the Zoo. Buses #151, #156, #22, #73 and #36 all stop near the Zoo gates, as well. For more information or to plan your trip in advance, check out the Chicago Transit Authority’s handy Trip Planner.
  • If you’re going green and riding your bike, there are plenty of racks to lock your bike on while you play!

Will there be parking?
Limited public parking is available onsite, at the corner of Fullerton Parkway and Cannon Drive (2400 North Cannon Drive, Chicago, IL 60614). Normal daily rates apply.

Will Feedback be ADA-accessible?
You bet. Lincoln Park Zoo is fully compliant with all ADA standards! Please refer to their website (lpzoo.org) for more info.

Since the event is at the Zoo…do I get to see the animals?
Of course! Lots of the animals will be enjoying the show with us, so you’ll get to experience the absolute magic of this one-of-a-kind venue.

Can I bring the kiddos?
The more the merrier! Feedback is an all-ages event, however, all attendees must have a ticket.

What if it rains?
The show goes on! This event is rain or shine – don’t forget the sun block or ponchos. Sorry, no refunds for a soggy day.

What can I bring ith me?
Besides good vibes and a hearty appetite?

  • Small blankets – smaller than 6x6t ft.
