Each August, hundreds of thousands of people flock to Central Illinois to experience Decatur Celebration, the Midwest’s most exciting family street festival. The massive 3-day event blankets the downtown business district with:
Five Festivals in One:Music, Food, Arts & Crafts, Carnival, and Film
8 Show Stages featuring national and emerging music artists
Over 70 unique food items hand-selected for quality and inspected for safety
3 blocks of Arts & Crafters
Spectacular carnival rides for all ages
Razzle Dazzle Goodtimes Parade televised LIVE on WAND Storm Center 17
Kids Block featuring children’s games, shows and prizes
Wine Garden featuring a premier selection of wine and the cool sounds of blues music
“Indie” art and music area called “The Back Lot” featuring emerging music artists on the Spotlight Stage, a community art project, artist exhibitions and craft beers.
Decatur Celebration’s 29 year-and-counting legacy includes much more than entertainment for the whole family; the Celebration is all about community. Each year the event generates over $100,000 for a number of local service organizations, provides opportunities for volunteerism, and means millions to the local business community.
