PrairieFest Entertainment

Free concerts from a mix of national and local bands, along with entertaining performances have always been a highlight of the weekend, and this year’s lineup is sure not to disappoint. Partnered with free parking and free admission, the PrairieFest schedule fills a great weekend.

For family entertainment, PrairieFest is going to the dogs. Chris Perondi’s Stunt Dog Show will be wowing crowds all weekend. Chris’s talented furry best friends are amazing stunt dogs who have been rescued from shelters all across the country. With tours to state fairs, national theme parks, and the Oprah Winfrey show, the Oswegoland Park District is excited for the original stunt dog show to stop at PrairieFest.

Thursday’s celebration begins with talented student groups, culminating with The PrairieWinds Community Concert, a PrairieFest tradition for musicians in our area. Anyone interested in joining the community band can contact Kristie Vest at kvest@oswegolandpd.org or (630) 554-4425.
