Festivals & Events

Looking for something to do this weekend? Check out the annual events along the byway. From car shows to bike tours, we’ve got you covered. In Quincy, the Early Tin Dusters hold the largest car show of its kind in the Midwest. Be a part of something big at Floatzilla, the largest flotilla of canoes and kayaks on the river. In Galena, General Grant’s Home Front portrays reenactments of Civil War battles, while Market Days at Cahokia Mounds offers Native American artisan goods. The Tour de Shawnee’s ride through southern Illinois has you cycling through the natural beauty of Shawnee National Forest. During winter, celebrate the return of bald eagles with events like Bald Eagle Days in Rock Island. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, there’s always a reason to head out on the byway.
