So, a pig walks into a bar...

Well, that's one way to make fun of pigs and Hog Days, but here's another...come to our annual end of summer Labor Day weekend celebration and make some fun for yourself by enjoying our last poke at Summer before Autumn arrives! If you are the competitive type, we have 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!

Not into physical, then how about a stroll through the flea market/craft show that takes place all weekend in one of our picturesque parks, participation in the Model T and A Road Rally or scooping up the bargains at our local library's annual book sale or the Boss Manufacturing/Excel Leather Outlet coat and glove sale.

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 Larget Outdoor Pork Barbecue going on all weekend long serving over 30 thousand pork chop and pork burger sandwiches as well as over forty food vendors set up on the streets of downtown Kewanee and at the flea market/craft show. We have numerous "all you can eat" breakfasts put on by local clubs and service organizations 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 only a stone's throw from all that food we just told you about and there's plenty of time to just relax and enjoy the final days of summer with family, friends, guests and visitors.

So whether you make fun of it...a pig, a cow and a sheep are in a boat with only 1 life preserver...or, make fun of it...let's see, pork chops, cotton candy, funnel cake, lemon shake-ups, carnival rides...come join us Friday, September 4th through Monday, September 7th, 2015 for our 62nd Annual Kewanee Hog Days.  We'll provide the food and festival...all you need do is Make FUN of It!
