Welcome to the
Tremont Turkey Festival
Summer starts with us at the 56th annual Tremont Turkey Festival and we would love to have you join us for our community's summer celebration. We hope you will agree a visit to the festival feels like home -- friendly people, good food, and a place you will want to come back to over and over.
Enjoy the beautiful park as you explore the wares at the craft and antique booths, stop by the country store for a lemonade shake-up, or watch the numerous performers in the entertainment area. (All of the entertainment is free!) From the Miss Tremont Pageant, to the carnival, to the parade on Sunday afternoon, there is something here to entertain all ages.
We mentioned good food, right? Food is a huge part of our festival. From strawberry shortcakes and smoothies, to pancakes and sausage on Saturday morning, to our famous grilled turkey, we have plenty of options to offer and we encourage you to try them all. View our Schedule for a complete listing of events.
The Turkey Festival Needs You!
Looking for a way you can help out at the festival? Consider volunteering to work in the food line on Friday, June 10. We are often short on volunteers on Friday so we would love to have you help out on that day. Feel free to bring your family and friends along too!
If the food line is not your thing, we have plenty of other places where you can help. Contact the festival chairpeople at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Thanks in advance for your time and enthusiasm.
If your business wants to place a large order (20 or more sandwiches) for pickup at Turkey Express on Friday, June 10, we appreciate your patronage, but request you let us know ahead of time so we can plan for your order and expedite your pick-up.
Please complete our Large Pre-Order Form.
Saturday is t-shirt day! Wear your Turkey Festival t-shirt and show your Tremont pride.
Jeff Muehlich Servant Leadership Award
The Jeff Muehlich Servant Leadership Award was established in 2016 to honor residents of the Tremont community who exemplify leadership through community service.
Jeff's passion for his town, school, and church was unquestionable. He dedicated his life to serving others through his time as a commissioner on Tremont Park Board, coaching and organizing various youth programs, volunteering at school functions, and donating many hours each year at the Tremont Turkey Festival.
The recipient of this award will be chosen by a panel of local leaders and will be announced at the Miss Tremont Pageant. A donation will be made in the recipient's name to a Tremont organization of their choosing.
Residents are encouraged to submit nominations for this award using the nomination form.
The Early Bird Gets...Turkey
Our goal is to try to have turkey available until at least 7 or 8 PM on Friday and Saturday, and at least until close to the start of the parade on Sunday, but sometimes the crowds are huge and the turkey sells faster than we expected. We hate disappointing anyone, but the bright side of this is when it happens, it means a lot of people came thru the food lines before you and our sales were fantastic, which means we raised a lot of money for the community. Our best advice eat early. We dont want you to go away hungry.
No Dogs Allowed
The Tremont Park District ordinances prohibit dogs in the park, so unfortunately you will need to leave Fido at home.
