About The Event

Thank you for visiting our website. Algonquin Founders’ Days Festival began in 1961 with a group of local businessmen who wanted to celebrate their community. Fifty-seven years later that tradition continues. Every year a group of dedicated volunteers work to bring families, friends and neighbors together to enjoy a family-friendly four day event, with something for everyone including: Bicycle Decorating Contest, BBQ Cook-Off, Kids Korner, Outdoor Business Expo, Family Olympics, great music, one of the longest standing parades in the state, Trivia Night and the Fireworks Spectacular over the Fox River. As an independent festival that began in 1961, there have been many individuals volunteers over the years who have given selflessly to bring Algonquin a great celebration. As the years have changed so has the festival, though we continue to be a self-sustaining festival without assistance from tax dollars. Every dollar raised brings the festival to life. Everything you see and experience through the festival is generously provided to the community by local businesses and individuals that recognize the value of our community. Ready to make a difference? Ready to volunteer? The Founders’ meetings are held the last Monday of the month, except August & December.

Libido Funk Circus

70's, 80's, 90's

LFC's origin dates back to 1996 when a group of guys from Chicago's original music scene decided to throw a disco party for their closest friends. When the disco band they wanted to hire was out of their budget, they decided... "What the heck, let's do it ourselves!" They donned some disco attire, learned about 30 disco tunes and ROCKED that party! The following weeks, the offers for more and more shows poured in and little did they know, that evening was the beginning of a 20+ year career. Through the years as the disco craze died down, they traded the all-disco attire for some flashy, colorful clothing, added 2 female singers and expanded their repertoire to include music from 60's to current and various musical genres. One thing that has always remainedthe same is their love for a "good show."
