It is all about family fun on the most famous road in America - Route 66.  Sponsored by the twelve communities which make up the 80-mile linear museum from Joliet to Lexington, the  annual festival invites everyone to experience the good life in the slow lane.  

Each community will produce its own events. From full-blown festivals to antique and craft sales, art sales, car and motorcycle shows, live entertainments, and plenty of yard, garage, and sidewalk sales along the way, everyone is sure to discover something unique.  

Food, snacks and treats will be in abundance, and there are plenty of historic sites, outstanding free museums and unique mom & pop businesses to help create a nostalgic journey for all to enjoy. Visitors can simply enjoy the drive, or stop and get out of the car to have their 
picture taken with Elvis, or do a little shopping in any of the great stores along the Mother Road.
