Paperfest presented by Community First Credit Union features country national act Eli Young Band! The 32nd annual free-admission festival boasts a great live music lineup, balloon glow, fireworks, carnival rides, sporting events, games, family fun, and much more! Paperfest will be held in conjunction with the Combined Locks centennial celebration on July 16-19 at Memorial Park, Combined Locks. The music is great and the beer is cold. The best part is the proceeds from Paperfest are donated back into the community through various Fox Valley nonprofit organizations. It’s all about community!
As the sun goes down the lights go up in a big way with great live music! National country music group – ELI YOUNG BAND will be highlighting Friday July 17 and Fran Cosmo (formerly of BOSTON) who will be highlighting Saturday July 18. Other amazing acts include Vic Ferrari Symphony on the Rocks, the Glam Band, Nashville Pipeline, Road Trip, Reckless Remedy, and Richrath Project 3:13. You won’t want to miss all of the live music on 2 stages at Paperfest!
As if that wasn’t enough, there will also be the Combined Locks Centennial Fireworks show on Friday, Fox Communities Credit Union Hot Air Balloon Glow on Saturday, and Food Trucks throughout the weekend. Sporting events include the Tour de Fest bike ride, 5K Run/Walk, Grass Volleyball Tournament, and the Car, Truck & Motorcycle Show. Whether you enjoy family activities and watching the kids on carnival rides or having a drink with friends, come out and support the community at Paperfest!
COVID-19 UPDATE: Paperfest remains committed to planning a great community festival through the unprecedented times as we are all hopeful to have something to celebrate come July. We are cognizant of the changing environment and will share updates on the Paperfest Facebook page. Through this process we must remember community is more important now than ever before.
