The City of Elgin is currently accepting proposals to provide ticketing, entry gate and security services for the city’s premier annual festival, Nightmare on Chicago Street (NOCS) scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 20, 2018. The City of Elgin reserves the right to reject any or all RFQs, or any part thereof, or to accept any RFQ or any part thereof, or to waive informalities in any RFQ, if deemed to be in the best interest of the city.
Nightmare on Chicago Street is a post-apocalyptic themed street festival that takes place in downtown Elgin each October. Since its inception in 2011, the event has grown from an attendance of approximately 3,500 to over 18,000 in 2017. The growth of the event has made it difficult for the City to continue to operate the ticketing, entry and security required in-house while still retaining the guest experience expected by our attendees.
Proposals and qualifications should be received by the City of Elgin Purchasing Department, attention Butch Wilhelmi not later than 12:00pm, Friday, April 20, 2018. Proposals may be submitted in person or via mail to The City of Elgin Purchasing Department, 150 Dexter Ct. Elgin, IL 60120. The City will not be responsible for late, lost or misdirected mail. Working timetable is as follows:
