Each summer, Montgomery Fest brings together neighbors and friends from throughout the area to enjoy a weekend of old-fashioned family fun. Held the second weekend in August along the banks of the Fox River, highlights of the Fest include musical performances, carnival rides, a wide range of food vendors, petting zoo, a fishing derby, a car show, parade and fireworks.
In 2020, Montgomery Fest will be held on August 7,8 and 9. Special events will include contests, terrific entertainment, and a parade that local groups or businesses can participate in with no registration fee (although advance sign-up is required).

The Village of Montgomery partners with the Montgomery Foundation to offer a beer booth at Montgomery Fest. Anyone 21 years of age can enjoy a cold beer along with their favorite festival foods in the food court. All proceeds from the beer booth benefit the Montgomery Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that supports programs of education and community service.
Various levels of partnerships are available for businesses. This is a wonderful way to show your support for the community and showcase your business at the Fest. We would like to thank the 2019 Montgomery Fest Sponsors who are making this event possible!
