Fall Events

We have events every weekend

Looking for a something to do?

ILLINOISouth is home to 22 counties meaning there is always something going on. Get ready to have fun this fall with events happening all around our territory.


Fall is that special time of year where there is a constant buzz in the air. As we come down from busy summer weekends, the air fills with a crispness that can only mean the leaves are falling and the days are getting shorter.

If you haven’t been to ILLINOISouth for fall yet, what are you waiting for? There are so many events happening each weekend that help get the most out of this quick time of year before we start preparing for the cold.

Take some time to browse around to find an event or maybe explore one of the many fall trip ideas we have for you. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to helping you plan your fall time fun.

Don’t forget to send us the pictures you take this fall
or use #ILSouth on social media.
