Events sought for BC Tourism Guide

The Bureau County Tourism Committee seeks information by early February on events happening around the county in 2018.

Any event information will be placed in the Bureau County Tourism Guide. There are 10,000 copies of the guide printed the first week of March. They are distributed all around the state at visitors centers and locally at businesses throughout Bureau County and beyond. Event information will also be on the committee’s Facebook page and its website at www.bureaucounty-IL.com.

All kinds of events will be listed from parades to festivals, 5K races and fundraisers plus local outdoor activities like fishing tournaments, cross country skiing and hunting. If communities are planning special events to commemorate the state of Illinois’ 200th birthday event in 2018, the committee will also list them in the tourism guide.

Send event information to Kathy Bauer, 205 S. Fifth St., Princeton, IL 61356 or email to kathybctourism@yahoo.com. People may also call 815-866-3606 in the evenings with event details.
