Illinois celebrates its 200th Birthday (Constitution Day) with official birthday parties at several venues throughout the state on August 26, 2018. The closest birthday celebration to DeKalb County will be in Rockford, Illinois.
Visit the Burpee Museum of Natural History for a public birthday celebration, including free slices of a Bicentennial Birthday Cake handcrafted by Eli’s Cheesecake, one of the state’s Illinois Made makers. Supplies are limited, so get there early to celebrate Illinois!
The Burpee Museum of Natural History is located at 737 North Main Street in Rockford. The Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eli’s slices are available for the first 200 visitors.
