Parking at the event
There are many parking places available at the event. However, there will be a lot of people in St. Charles on the day of the event. Not all will be attending our event and while we have enough parking to accommodate many cars, you might have a challenge if you try and park close after the event starts. We suggest you look over the maps on Google, etc. and see the parking around the event. We have over 600 parking places close to the event and plenty of parking around St. Charles. We are also going to negotiate with the casino to allow us to use their lots as well.
Pets at GeoWoodstock
Pets are not allowed in Frontier Park during events. There are no exceptions unless it is a documented service animal. However, the Katy Trail runs through Frontier Park and is State Park property. Pets are allowed on the Katy Trail as long as they are leashed.
