Experience Guide 2021 - 12

Seasonal
CHECKLIST
The seasons come and go, bringing everything from rich, fall colors, to a
winter wonderland, bright spring blooms, and warm summer nights. As
the days pass and the weather changes, there are events and activities to
count on as you cross off days on your calendar.
FALL
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PUMPKINS
Load up the family or grab your friends and head to
the patch to enjoy this Midwest pastime. Illinois is the
largest pumpkin producing state and we have three great
patches to pick your seasonal d├ęcor. In Amish Country,
visit The Great Pumpkin Patch, with 300 varieties of
pumpkins, squash, and gourds from over 30 countries,
with creative and educational displays. Curtis Orchard &
Pumpkin Patch in Champaign opens up their patch for
picking pumpkins in all shapes and colors, alongside a
variety of activities for the family. Off the beaten path, you
can discover Negangard Pumpkin Patch, a small familyowned
farm that is beloved by our residents.
CORN MAZES
Corn is not always for eating. Sometimes, it's for getting
lost. Wander into the tall stalks of corn at Hardy's
Reindeer Ranch, where you can get lost in their 10-acre
design which changes every year. For the younger ones,
check out the smaller mazes at both Curtis Orchard &
Pumpkin Patch and The Great Pumpkin Patch.
FESTIVALS
As our population grows in the fall with the return of
University of Illinois students and faculty, we welcome
an abundance of fall festivals. Music is celebrated at the
C-U Folk & Roots Festival across various Urbana venues,
and at Pygmalion, you'll hear the latest in alternative
and indie rock, alongside dialogue on
pertinent issues, literature, a makers
fair, and a tech showcase. The
Japan House at the University
of Illinois celebrates culture
virtually with Matsuri, and
Uniting Pride presents the
CU Pride Fest complete with
the biggest pride parade
south of Chicago. In Arcola,
the popular, annual Broomcorn
Festival returns for its 50th year
in 2021!
Matsuri
WINTER
REINDEER
Do the holidays happen if you
don't have reindeer? We don't
think so. Truly feel the magic of
the season with a reindeer kiss
at Hardy's Reindeer Ranch. Sip on
some hot apple cider and shop their
large Christmas collection for a mustdo
winter experience.
HOLIDAY SHOPPING
Get in the spirit of giving and do your holiday shopping in the greater
Champaign County area. Local boutiques and shops offer one-of-a-kind
gifts no matter who is on your list. Pick up something truly unique from
one of the many maker fairs in November-December, highlighting our
talented local artists.
PARADES
Our communities celebrate the holiday season
with parades of all kinds. Head to Arthur for
their annual Amish Country Christmas Kickoff
and Lighted Parade. Small towns around
Champaign-Urbana bring out the cheer at
their celebrations, from Tuscola to Monticello.
Following the Thanksgiving holiday, head to
the streets of Downtown Champaign for the
Parade of Lights, complete with carolers and
hot cocoa.
CELEBRATE LOCAL FOOD
Our local restaurants offer fresh flavors, showcasing
cuisines from all around the world. Now more than ever, we
look forward to highlighting our award-winning culinary scene during
the annual Champaign County Area Restaurant Week, late January to
early February.
