Our focus and theme in East Dundee is to celebrate our heritage and founding through food, song and dance of the times.

To enhance the downtown presence, besides the Deutschfest Tent and International Food Tent, River Street will include a Community and Business Faire, the Depot Market (Sat morn), Farmers Market (Sun morn) and an Antique (Model T Fords) Car show (Sun morn). To take advantage of "The Depot," we'll be offering a trackless train to transport families to and from Bartels park where we have created a "Fundfest." All Dundee area elementary schools and organizations are encouraged to participate in Fundfest, featuring a live magic show followed by the KidBucks game show that will give schools an opportunity to raise funds for their school year! A school representative will have fun on stage while qualifying for a chance in the Money Booth! All monies collected in the Money Booth will go to the school or organization! Celebrating 17 years in the Dundee area, the annual Heritage Fest will be held September 12-14 in downtown East and West Dundee.
