The Fourth of July is coming — and with it arrive family friendly events in and around Champaign-Urbana, from Paxton to Monticello to Rantoul to Seymour to Tuscola to Danville.
This list comprises events such as parades, craft days, festivals, fireworks and more. For your convenience, we have a fireworks-only list too.
In Champaign-Urbana and beyond, marking Independence Day means more than a week of celebrations. So don’t be surprised to see that a lot of this Fourth of July revelry actually takes place on days other than the actual holiday.
But hey — why limit the celebrations to just one day? That seems to be the mantra throughout East Central Illinois.
Thanks to the U of I Meat Sales Room for presenting this list. A great resource for all your summer cookout needs!
Meat & Egg Sales is an operation run by the Department of Animal Sciences and located on the University of Illinois campus in the Meat Science Lab. They offer fresh and frozen meat, bacon, sausage, eggs, and much more from the University farms for curbside pick-up several times a week; in-person sales re-open on July 2! More info HERE; sign up for “Meat Mail” and get their hours, too. You can also like them on Facebook.
On to Fourth of July events and activities around Champaign-Urbana…
With the Fourth of July on a Sunday this year, celebrations will be going strong for the whole weekend. Don’t miss your favorite event; put it on your calendar today.
The best news: many of these events are completely free! Any admission prices are indicated where applicable.
Enjoy your Fourth of July, Champaign-Urbana!
