4:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Join us on Saturday, July 14, at our 28th Annual Heritage Fest in conjunction with Illinois’ Bicentennial celebration in our quaint historic downtown. The streets are filled with music, food and fun for the entire family. Kids can enjoy FREE entertainment and activities from 4-8 p.m. with face painting and pony rides to tackling the black ops obstacle course and the tidal wave zip line. Our main stage attractions begin at 4 p.m. with 4th Point, followed by Timing’s Everything from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., and Centerfold will rock the house from 9-11 p.m. We will be celebrating our heritage and Illinois’ Bicentennial with traditional activities like bingo at Budnik’s Plaza, old time photos, Totura’s famous sausage, and an all-time favorite, “smash the car.” Don’t be surprised when you see Abraham Lincoln roaming around our downtown! Pollyanna Brewing Company, a Main Event Sponsor, will be pouring their craft beers straight from their brewhouse! Come and be part of our scene!
