Midsommar Music Festival 2020

Don’t forget to join us this summer for our traditional Midsommar celebration on Saturday June 20.  Our park performers this year are Black Hawk Pipes and Drums, Hammer & Pick, Milltown Band, and Big River Reeltime Band.  As always, we will have the Midsommarstång (Maypole) decorating in the park and procession to the Colony School in the afternoon. Starting at 6 p.m., there will also be a barn dance at the Colony School with Ragged Robin and caller Gail Hintze. The Midsommar Music Festival is partially sponsored by the BHHA and the Illinois Arts Council Agency, a state agency.
