Homestead Festival Canceled

The 2020 Bureau County Homestead Festival is canceled.  The Homestead Committee made the following announcement on its website and Facebook page Friday morning.  “It is with great regret and sadness we must announce the cancellation of this year’s Bureau County Homestead Festival”.  “We have been holding on to every bit of hope we could proceed with our annual end of the summer event, but after much forethought, we decided continuing with the celebration as planned would unnecessarily risk both our community and those attending this year’s festival.”  Plans for the 2021 Homestead Festival are already underway. Next year’s event is scheduled for the weekend of September 10-12 and will mark the 50th anniversary of the festival.  The 50/50 ticket sales will continue this year and the drawing will be held on Sunday, September 13 at 3:30 p.m.  The winner will be announced on the Homestead Festival website and the Homestead Festival Facebook page.  All proceeds will benefit next year’s 50th Anniversary celebration.
