Moccasin Creek Festival is an annual 4-day music festival, which typically celebrates other arts and crafts as well.  It takes place at beautiful Lake Sara in Summit Township, just west of Effingham, Illinois.  The lake was created in the 1950's from five creeks that run through the basin.  One of those creeks was named Moccasin Creek by a surveyor named Tipsword in the 1850's, because of moccasin tracks he found on the banks.
