There will be no shortage of unique vendor booths at the festival. Over 50 booths will be present in the festival’s vendor alley, where local merchants will display their goods from 12 pm- 5 pm.  Grab a copy of the Prairie Day Scavenger Hunt postcard from the City booth and find our featured vendors.  Turn in your card for a chance to win a prize.

Bring an empty stomach

Local concessions and food trucks will be available for the duration of the festival, from 12 pm - 8 pm. Enjoy a wide array of local eats and carnival-themed treats. Select food trucks will remain on festival grounds during the evening concert.
     Dance the NIGHT away
On the main stage starting at 6:30 pm,  you won’t want to miss a live performance by our evening band.  There will be a fireworks show provided by Fireworks City at approximately 9pm.
