Mother Road Festival Cancelled for 2020
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and within the guidelines of the Restore Illinois’ Phased Reopening Plan, the Board of Directors for Illinois Route 66 Events, Inc. has announced that the 2020 International Route 66 Mother Road Festival, scheduled for September 25-27, will be cancelled for this year. The cancellation includes the Travel Expo, which is run by the Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway.

Plans are underway to resume the Festival for its 20th anniversary in September 2021 and to once again welcome our Festival attendees from around the globe to Springfield to continue our annual celebration of all things Route 66.
