Route 66 Red Carpet Corridor
( Event not held in 2020 due to virus. )
The City of Lexington is a major sponsor to the 70 Mile- long Festival that celebrates the “Mother Road” each spring in early May. Local businesses and organizations in each town along the route provide a large variety of activities for travelers and local citizens alike to focus on the prosperity the road brought to each community along the way. In Lexington vendors can sign up for a booth along the park square or Main Street for the weekend and usually more than 30 booth spaces provide food, drinks, and novelties to keep the crowd interested. To sign up for a booth, call the City of Lexington office, 309-365-3331 or email any questions to email@example.com. The goal is to continue the flavor of past events and improve and promote the Route 66 Red Carpet Corridor to bring attention to our wonderful Lexington community. Watch for unfolding plans each week so you can fully participate in all the fun!
