Summer Camp Music Festival, created by Jay Goldberg Events & Entertainment is being held on August 20-August 22 this year. The festival’s first event in 2001 brought about 1,000 patrons to enjoy over 15 bands on two stages during the 2-day event at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL. Since, Summer Camp has transformed the grounds annually, welcoming in more fans, more fun and way more music. This event is now the host of a variety of performances on multiple stages over three days (four if you make it to the Thursday Pre-Party!). This is Chillicothe’s 20th annual year hosting this festival. With a variety of performances on multiple different stages throughout the weekend, you won't want to miss the fun!
