Festival Information for ByronFest ByronFest
Fri, Jul 12, 2013 - Sun, Jul 14, 2013


ByronFest, one of the finest family festivals in Northern Illinois, is held annually during the second full weekend in July. 2010's festival is scheduled for July 9, 10 and 11, with a GospelFest kick-off on July 8 at Neighbors Rehab and Healthcare Center. The festival is located in Byron?s downtown area. Additional events are held in other venues throughout the city, including athletic events at the Byron Park District and Jarrett Prairie Center, a classic car show at the United Church of Byron and quilt show at the Byron Museum of History.

ByronFest is a venture of the Byron Chamber of Commerce designed to encourage and promote tourism in the Byron area and to showcase the Byron community to the many visitors who travel to Byron for the three-day event. In addition, the festival provides an opportunity for many not-for-profit organizations to raise funds for various projects. During the past fourteen years, ByronFest has returned more than $543,000 to local charitable groups. These organizations have in turn used the funds for community improvements and programs throughout the area.

Some local organizations that have taken advantage of this opportunity include Byron Lions Club, Byron Kiwanis Club, Byron Key Club, Byron Firemen?s Association, Boy Scouts, Tiger Town Park Committee, Byron High School Cross Country, Byron High School Volleyball, and Byron High School Football.

Want to Help? Planning and operating an event of this size requires not only the work of the Chamber staff and ByronFest Steering Committee, but also the efforts of over 400 dedicated local volunteers. If you are interested in donating a few hours of your time to assist with this worthwhile community festival, please contact the Chamber of Commerce office at 815.234.5500
