Cue the pig chorus line! You've arrived at the page of Kewanee Hog Days, a four day event held every Labor Day weekend since 1954. As far as end of summer celebrations go, it's PIG, attracting friends, family and guests from the Midwest and beyond.

The weekend includes three health fitness runs and walks (one just for kids), golf, disc golf, co-ed softball, a biking tour of the Kewanee/Henry County area that can be competitive or not (it's up to you)  and the ever popular Hog Wallow Classic - a mud fest with a little volleyball thrown in!

There's the flea market/craft show that takes place in one of our picturesque parks (with more than a hundred different vendors taking part),  the Model T and A Road Rally, our local library's annual book sale, the Boss Manufacturing/Excel Leather Outlet coat and glove sale and tours of Ryan's Round Barn...a huge (over 80' tall) refurbished structure from the early 1900s that is considered one of the tallest barns in America with absolutely no corners because back then we didn't want "any corners for the devil to hide in!"

Oh and don't forget the annual Hog Days parade! A one mile march of bands, floats and everything red, white and blue to celebrate our roots in agriculture.

And if you get hungry, we have the World's Largest Outdoor Pork Barbecue going on all weekend long serving over 30 thousand pork chop and pork burger sandwiches as well as nearly fifty food vendors set up on the streets of downtown Kewanee and at the flea market/craft show serving everything from chicken fingers (what!) to pork ka-bobs and everything in between! We have numerous "all you can eat" breakfasts put on by local clubs and service organizations in Kewanee as well as a host of restaurants and local eating establishments ready and waiting for you all weekend long.

For kids of all ages we have C.D.A.C Carnival and Concessions with dozens of family-friendly games and rides. Free stage shows are held all weekend long and there's plenty of time to just relax and enjoy the final days of summer with family, friends, guests and visitors before we begin the trek into falling leaves and football.

So get in the car, set the GPS and head on in to Kewanee, IL Friday, September 2nd through Monday, September 5th, 2016 for our 63rd annual Kewanee Hog Days.  It's food, festival and lots of fun. Welcome to the PIG Time!
