No coolers please. There are plenty of choices for eats and drinks at Willowfest so please help us keep this event FREE! There is something for each and every taste bud – Taylor’s offers Ice cream, brownies, fried dough and pastries, Louie’s has hot dogs, Franklin’s will have corn on the cob, kettle corn, cotton candy and caramel apples, Fowlers will have candy apples and taffy, Jim’s will have blooming onions, Ross’s will have Italian sausage, hamburgers and Philly cheesesteaks, among many, many more.

Music will fill the air all weekend at Willowfest. There will be a DJ from 3pm – 5pm on Friday night, followed by Crash Cadillac, taking the stage from 5pm – 9pm. The following day, there will a DJ from noon – 2pm, Elvis impersonator Terry Buchwald from 2pm – 4pm, Free Henry from 4:30 – 7, then Sheridan Community Choir will finish off the night from 8:00 -9:00 pm.
No shortage of events at Willowfest either! A fireman’s hose race will be held Friday night at 6pm, and there will be amusement park style rides and games as well all weekend, with a ride special on Saturday from noon until 4pm. There will also be fireworks both nights starting at dusk!

Admission and parking for Willowfest are free! It’s recommended to arrive by 7pm because it fills up fast and after 7pm it will be harder to find parking and get into the festival.
