Driving the Dixie Tour

June 16, 2018, 2-6pm

Nostalgia buffs will again converge in Chicago’s south suburbs to take part in the Drivin' the Dixie Car Tour. This event, set for the 3rd Saturday of June each year, aims to raise awareness of the historic importance of Dixie Highway as well as the towns and villages that emerged along its path.

On Saturday, June 18th, Momence will once again host the final destination for the Driving the Dixie Tour. The event will again be held at the Momence Park District's Island Park.

This year's event will feature live music, concessions, and a $250 raffle.
