Visiting Central Illinois

Summer shines bright in central Illinois. Warmer weather means it’s the best time of year for outdoor activities in area parks – check out Sand Ridge State Park. What’s more, communities from Pontiac to Springfield to Arcola come together to celebrate the summer sun with all sorts of special events, festivals, and family-friendly fun.

Sports fans don’t have to drive all the way up to Chicago to enjoy America’s Favorite Pastime. The Peoria Chiefs, a Class-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, round the bases at Dozer Park, just minutes from East Peoria in downtown Peoria. Check the schedule for game times and special theme nights during your visit.

The 2016 Capital City Celebration is an opportunity to explore downtown Springfield while enjoying carnival-style rides and games, live entertainment, food, and more. The fun goes all day on July 3rd and 4th, with the festivities culminating in a classic Fourth of July fireworks display.

There’s also the 2016 Red, White & Bloom – for even more Independence Day fun. It’s an evening of fireworks and patriotic music at at Peoria’s Riverfront Park on July 4th, starting around sundown.

Join residents at the Old State Capitol Plaza in downtown Springfield for the 2016 Downtown Bacon Throwdown on July 15th and 16th. It’s a gathering of more than 20 local restaurants welcoming you to take a sizzling and savory journey through a multitude of bacon and bacon-inspired dishes.

Central Illinois’ relatively cool summers mean fair season comes early. Families won’t want to miss the 2016 Illinois State Fair, August 11th through 21st. It’s 11 days of great food, carnival rides, livestock shows, exhibits, auto racing, live music, and more at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield.
