Autumn on Parade Festival

PO Box 234
Oregon, IL 61061



According to festival history Autumn on Parade started back in 1970 by a group of seven volunteers wanting to showcase the area's many fine homemade treats such as bittersweet and apples. Those seven vendors sold their items on Third Street on a rainy weekend in September.

As the festival began to take shape, the Farmers' Market was moved to the Courthouse Square where the stately Ogle County Courthouse, age 121, provides an impressive backdrop for the event.

Since then, Autumn on Parade, now held the first weekend of October, has stayed a volunteer based organization and has grown to include more than 150 vendors and other events such as the Harvest Time Parade, Auto Classic, Duck Dash and many more family orientated events!
