Bishop Hill's Midsommar Music Festival returns with a strong line-up of musical performers. Highlights of this all-day event include Main Stage performances, a Swedish Maypole celebration, and an old-fashioned barn dance.

The free Main Stage performances in the village park gazebo will begin at 11:30 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. - with Jazz on the Side, Hammer & Pick, Zak and Erin, and Black Hawk Pipes and Drums.
Immediately following the Main Stage performances, everyone is invited to decorate the Maypole with flowers and to join the procession. Accordionist Ernie Sandquist will lead the Maypole procession. It will begin in the park and end at the Colony School where visitors can join in the Maypole dancing and have refreshments provided by the Bishop Hill Vasa Lodge.
Later that evening, there will be a barn dance at the Colony School with The Rusty Pickup String Band and caller Gail Hintze.
Admission to the barn dance is $5 per person.

The Bishop Hill Heritage Association will also be having its 2nd annual Rubarber Fundraiser. The BHHA will be serving homemade rhubarb baked goods, with coffee and lemonade, at the Steeple Building Museum front porch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to support BHHA activities.
