Event Planning currently underway for 2019
We will celebrate our local ties to Abraham Lincoln – and historic Route 66! Lincoln’s Festival on Route 66 offers three days of programs, most of them free.
Activities have included Lincoln-themed films, a variety of concerts, theatrical and living-history performances, a car show, a Civil War encampment and battle reenactments, a historic bike show, an exhibition of rare Lincoln artifacts, and presentations by distinguished scholars.
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 for every member of the family.
We are honored to have earned the following designations:
