2022 Illinois Festival Guide

All your festival listings for Chicago, Aurora, Springfield and all of Illinois.

Welcome to Illinois’ most comprehensive festival guide where you can find all of the music festivals, food festivals, wine and beer festivals, cultural festivals, art festivals, weird festivals, Oktoberfests and more in such cities as Chicago, Decatur, Peoria, Effingham, Rockford and everywhere in-between.

If you want festival listings for specific areas of Illinois, I currently have a listing for the greater Chicago area.

This guide does NOT include county/animal fairs, conventions/expos or events lacking the 3 essentials of a festival (food, vendors and entertainment). Feel free to contact me if you have a question about your event.

Also, please check dates and festival websites in links provided as time approaches, especially for any listings where there is an * (asterisk) next to the date. This means that the date is unconfirmed.

If there is a festival you do not see but would like listed, please Contact Me and let me know about it, especially smaller festivals that don’t have the advertising.

NOTE TO THOSE WHO SHARE MY SCHEDULE PAGE ON THEIR WEBSITE: If you share it on your own website or other form of media, please reference this website (ie a link back to this page). Please respect this. Thanks!
