We’re having a Hay Day downtown Rochelle on Saturday October 14th! Our newest event runs from 11am to 5pm on Lincoln Highway and throughout the Downtown.

The family-friendly, fall event features a petting zoo, giant inflatables, rock climbing, hay rides and more! Children are welcome to come in costume and may even find a treat! The Flagg Rochelle Library will host pumpkin decorating at the event and City Hall hosts a Pumpkin Decorating Contest for school ages through adult beginning October 11th.

We’ll have plenty of good food available with the Rochelle Fire Department serving their festival-famous pork chop sandwiches and Hicks BBQ.

Musical entertainment will be provided by bluegrass band The Templetons – a family of ten playing old time favorites.

Local artist, Danica Rogers has created a “Headless Horseman” with various types of hay & straw that is on display now at Sullivan’s Foods. Our Second Annual Straw Sculpting Competition will be held Downtown throughout the festival. Voting happens at City Hall and the winner will be announced during Hay Day!

Businesses, organizations and crafty individuals are invited to join in the fun! Create a straw or hay sculpture of your own and enter the competition. For details, visit www.enjoyrochelle.com.

We hope to see you there!
