Red Carpet Corridor Festival

he 16th Annual Illinois Route 66 Red Carpet Corridor has expanded to Saturday and Sunday on the first weekend in May. The event has also added Bloomington-Normal, expanding the event to 100 miles and 14 communities. This year’s Red Carpet Corridor will be May 6th.
This two-day festival is all about family fun on the most famous two-lane highway in America – Route 66. Sponsored by the fourteen communities which make up the 100-mile linear museum from Joliet to Bloomington, 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.
