Join a Fun Village Street Party at Burgoo Festival

Experience a fun village street party when the annual Burgoo Festival kicks off on the weekend of October 8 & 9. Visit a flea market featuring hundreds of vendors selling handmade crafts and original art and enjoy live entertainment to celebrate the arrival of the fall season. And don't miss the traditional dish known as "Burgoo." This tasty stew is made of chicken, pork, and vegetables blended with a unique blend of spices. It's cooked in giant pots over an open fire throughout the weekend. Famous as a favorite dish of the pioneers, today it is made with more modern ingredients. Local chef Mike Ellerbrock returns this year as Burgoo Meister for the 2016 festival. 

The festival opens on Saturday, October 8 at 11 am when the Canal Market welcomes over 100 vendors. Later in the day, you can catch an antique car show and live music acts all afternoon. On Sunday, October 9, more than 350 vendors will line the street from 9 am to 5 pm. As one of the largest festivals in Northern Illinois, the Burgoo Festival offers a fun family outing for all ages. Presented by the LaSalle County Historical Society, the festival is the organization's yearly fundraiser. It's easy to take part in the Burgoo Festival when you stay at Grizzly Jack's Grand Bear Resort. We are located just a three-minute ride down the street from the LaSalle County Historical Society Canal Market.
