Plan now for our July 19-21 Festival! Come celebrate our ties to Abraham Lincoln – and historic Route 66! Lincoln’s Festival on Route 66 offers three days of programs, most of them free.
New activities this summer include a vintage baseball tournament (the way Abe played it!), a classic car cruise-in right in Downtown Bloomington and the play Mr. Lincoln.
Experience theatrical and living-history performances, a Civil War encampment and battle reenactments, a historic bike show, presentations by distinguished historians, exhibitions of rare Lincoln and Route 66 artifacts. live music and children’s activities.
Of course, Mr. Lincoln will again be present throughout the festival sharing his experiences as an attorney traveling the Illinois Eighth Judicial Circuit with his Bloomington friends, and for your selfies!
If you've never before attended Lincoln’s Festival on Route 66, you'll find it to be a lively, entertaining, informative, and memorable event.
