This unique Fall Festival is a self-guided motor tour covering 140 miles of scenic roadways through various villages/cities. You will find antiques and collectibles, flea markets, fine arts and hand-made crafts, historic sites and reenactments of historical events, and home-cooked food everywhere.

     Fulton County is in West Central Illinois about 30 miles west of Peoria or 30 miles south of Galesburg. You may start the Scenic Drive entering Fulton County from any direction. At the first site you stop be sure to get an official Program Book. This will give you a map of Fulton County with all the official stops well marked, a listing of activities at each site and pieces of history about the sites. The Program Book is filled with a wealth of information on the Fall Festival.
