Downtown Kankakee is a place for the community to come together for special occasions, live music events, and meetings. Development is on the rise and business is bustling. There is always something to find in Downtown Kankakee.
The Harold & Jean Miner Festival Square is the centerpiece of the Downtown.
Surrounding our 120+ year-old Depot, the Festival Square is home to many community and personal events in the community.
Merchant Street MusicFest headlines the summers on the Square, taking over the entire area for a weekend of music bringing thousands of people to Downtown on the last weekend of every July.
