Monticellobration - September 21, 2019 in Historic, Downtown Monticello
Sep 21, 2019
All day event

Monticellobration is September 21, 2019!

Monticellobration is just around the corner! We're looking forward to another year of great vendor shopping, in addition to the already fantastic brick-and-mortar stores who are the heart and soul of our historic, downtown. Kirby Kids Corner is once again bringing the day-time fun for Littles! Be sure get the kids tucked away and come on back down because this year we're rockin' with regional and national music acts - and open libation - until MIDNIGHT! Aside from food/drink and shopping, the best part is that it is all FREE!

Our friends at Piatt County Trailblazers will be cooking up some tasty biscuits-and-sausage to kick-off the day with a community breakfast; be sure to stop by! Special thanks to Valentine Tire & Automotive for sponsoring the always-impressive Sundowners Car Show, which will be held again in front of East End Pub.

The First State Bank Young Entrepreneurs Row "Start Small. Dream Big" is a shot for young makers to bring their goods to Market, and you won't want to miss all they have to offer! Young Entrepreneurs who are interested in vending can access the vendor form HERE. Print, complete, scan/photograph and email back. Full directions on the form; space is limited to 20 vendors and due by Friday, Sept. 13.

It's going to be a great day to Make it Monticello!
