September Events for Champaign/Urbana IL

by Rose Price

It's still hard to believe summer is really behind us now. But the kids are back to school and that means busy schedules for everyone in the family. It’s sometimes easy to forget to relax and add a little fun to our busy weeks once we get into these routines.  But September in the great Champaign/Urbana area has some great activities and events you won't want to miss!  Take a look and add them to your calendar:

Labor Day Parade & Picnic

Say a final farewell to summer at the annual Labor Day Parade and Celebration.  All of those wonderful people who keep the community running will be floating through the streets of Urbana on Monday September 1st. This year’s theme is “The Living Legacy of Labor.” After the parade, head over to Prairie Park for free food, games and entertainment.

Jazz Walk

Whether you are looking for that perfect first date, or need a night away from the kids, mark down September 5th on your calendar. Walk through the candlelit paths of Meadowbrook Park while listening to live Jazz and local musicians.  The Jazz Walk will feature a variety of jazz soloists and small combos throughout the Wandell Sculpture Garden.

Illini Football vs. Western Kentucky                                                                                             

Are you ready for some football?? The Fighting Illini are back and ready for action. Come on out for a full day of fun and football at Memorial Stadium on September 6th. Experience the Illini Walk, take a stroll through Street Fest, and watch the Marching Illini Public Warm-up. Check out the full game schedule and make sure you don’t miss out.

Whiskey & Whiskers

Whiskey & Whiskers is the perfect night out for any gentleman. Kühl and Champaign Surplus are sponsoring a night full of food, music, whiskey and spirits. Throw in some cornhole, contests, and free giveaways and you have yourself a wonderful evening. Firehaus Bar & Grill will be providing beer, whiskey, and appetizers all night long. The event begins at 5:00pm on September 18th
