ByronFest, one of the finest family festivals in Northern Illinois, is held annually during the second full weekend in July.

  • GospelFest kick-off on July 9th at Neighbors Rehab and Healthcare Center.



  • Additional events are held in other venues throughout the city, including the Jarrett Prairie Center and quilt show at the Byron Museum of History.

ByronFest is a venture of the Byron Chamber of Commerce designed to encourage and promote tourism in the Byron area and to showcase the Byron community to the many visitors who travel to Byron for the three-day event. 

This event supports programs and activities provided by the Byron Area Chamber of Commerce.

Planning and operating an event of this size  requires not only the work of the Chamber staff and ByronFest Steering Committee but also the efforts of over 400 dedicated local volunteers.  If you are interested in donating a few hours of your time, please contact the Chamber of Commerce office at 815.234.5500 OR email office@byronchamber.com.
