Events & Parades in Pike County (Schedules)

Pike County loves festivals and parades.  During the summer and fall our communities celebrate with hometown festivals featuring great food, parades, excellent entertainment and activities for the kids. 

2018 Parade schedule- as of May 22, 2018         The list changes sometimes. You will always find the most current here .  

In addition, we have many other events- runs, walks, sports tournaments, off road jeeping, fundraising dinners and much more!

The Chamber tries to keep a listing of these events in our calendar (assessable on the front page) and when we have it, provide the full schedule for an event in an easy, printable format.  We attempt to provide contact information for the events to encourage your participation.  

This is an ever-changing list as events and contact people are added, deleted, or changed.  

The Calendar of Events changes regularly, so check back often.  If you wish to be added to our email distribution list for notification of changes and special events, send an email request to  

If you'd like to add a Pike County, Illinois event, send an email to that same address. We will need the "who, what, when, where,  and why" of your event.  

The list of 2018 parades is linked above with the information we have as of May 22, 2018. Things change so check back often.  We will date each version and note the changes in red.
