40 years ago, in an empty corner lot off of Route 59, Crossroads Fest was born amidst polyester and AMC Pacers. It was the Disco Era, the country had just passed thru Watergate and we were looking for some fun. It lasted one evening. Now , it’s grown from a community Octoberfest to an event that draws more than 25,000 people during its three-day run.
The Shorewood Area Chamber of Commerce works hard to bring this event to the area to grow local business and connect to the community. It is the chief fundraising event for the chamber and local businesses benefit directly from this festival. Without the amazing help of the Village of Shorewood, this event would not be possible, and for that we extend a sincere thank you!
This year’s Crossroads Festival will be from 4 p.m. to midnight Aug. 5th, noon to 1:00 a.m. August 6th & 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. August 7th at Cene’s Four Seasons Park located at 25520 W. Seil Road in Shorewood. The Festival is brought to the community by the Shorewood Area Chamber of Commerce. The Presenting Sponsor for the entire weekend is Heartland Bank and Trust.
The Crossroads fest kicks off at 4 p.m. Friday, with a ribbon cutting. The carnival runs from 4 to 11 p.m. The Entertainment Tent opens at 6 p.m. It looks to be another great year!
Crossroads Fest offers old fashioned festival fun and includes the Amateur Bean Bag Tournament, Pie, Hot Wing and Hot Dog Eating Contests and Fireworks on Saturday night provided by the Village of Shorewood. The highlight of the festival is the 12 p.m. parade on Sunday.
