Calendar of Events
The greater Champaign County area is a hotbed for fun, local events you can't find anywhere else in the region. From music festivals, to exhibition openings, to cultural events, there's always something going on.
An annual street festival in historic, downtown Monticello, highlighting the things that make our community unique! Food trucks, vendor shopping, our beloved brick-and-mortars, and all kinds of pop-ups and entertainment! 2018 boasted a kiddie tractor pull, two magicians, an exotic petting zoo, multiple bounce houses, an antique Hodge-hand car train ride for kids, face painting, ballon artist, LIVE music and so much more! We’re hoping to make it all happen again, and grow this event even more in 2019!This is a family-friendly daytime event, with evening festivities designed to entertain the 21+ crowd.
