The Dixon Petunia Festival is pleased to announce that we are moving the entertainment and food venues from the previous location in the page park area to the downtown area along the Heritage Riverfront. The festival will be held in an area on River Road between Peoria and Galena and on Hennepin from First Street to River Road. We will be featuring a main entertainment stage across River Road near the Dixon Tourism building and will have a tent set up on River Road for seating. Also new this year is the Peoria Street Bridge will be closed after the parade until after the fireworks. This will provide easy access between the downtown and the carnival area and will also create a new spot to watch fireworks. We are still working hard on finalizing the details for the 2013 festival. Please check back often for the complete schedule and to purchase tickets.
