The Village of South Elgin commissioned Wight to re-envision their community festival space. As the site of their annual Riverfest music festival and carnival, the design focused around an elevated and covered stage, an extra-large pavilion, concessions and restroom building, splash pad, additional parking, and improved pedestrian and vehicular circulation. Additionally, the entry to the Village Hall was improved with a monumental staircase and ADA ramp, plaza with seat walls, flag poles, and new landscaping all around the building. The improvements will welcome the citizens into the Village Hall and provide the community with a wonderfully designed space for their festivals and large family gatherings, allowing them to enjoy the Fox River for years to come.

Key features include:

  • Pergola structure
  • Band shell
  • Shelter
  • Restrooms/concessions
  • Splash pad
  • Riverwalk
  • On-street parking
