You can experience all kinds of fun in Utica this weekend: the Canal Market, a car show, the Burgoo Festival and plenty of your favorite AHW and ISC wines! The LaSalle County Historical Society’s Annual Burgoo Festival is set for Saturday and Sunday, October 9 & 10 in downtown Utica. The festival’s signature dish is Burgoo Stew, a pioneer dish consisting of beef, chicken, pork, vegetables and even some AHW wine!

The festival begins on Saturday, at 11 a.m., when the Canal Market opens featuring over 100 vendors. An Antique Car Show along with live music runs from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m.

The Festival resumes on Sunday when 375 plus vendors line the streets of Utica from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 pm. Burgoo Stew and other food items will be available as well as live music, live blacksmithing demos, and more.
