The Town of Normal and McLean County Arts Center have set a date for this year’s Sugar Creek Arts Festival. Normal Civic Arts Manager Adam Fox says they are trying to set a tentative schedule for several events.

Fox says nothing is set in stone due to COVID-19, but they have selected October 9 and 10 as the dates for this year’s Sugar Creek Arts Festival in Uptown Normal.
