The Pekin Marigold Festival

Quintessential Festival Fun for All

Bloom where you’re planted at Pekin’s annual Marigold Festival. It's always the weekend after Labor Day! It’s everything a small city festival should be. You can… take home a masterpiece from the next Michelangelo. Check out the longest ears winner in the Top Dog Pageant. Put down a new personal best in the 5K. And who doesn’t love a parade? Have your candy bags at the ready Saturday morning – we suggest a spot in front of the Courthouse on Court St. Then bounce on a rainbow in the Kids Experience. Get your fill of carnival rides and food. Catch a concert in the street at Sabella Street Station.

The fun never stops blooming!
