POSTPONED Day of the Dozer at the McLean County Fairgrounds

Day of the Dozer Postponed to Spring of 2022

The 2021 Day of the Dozer event, scheduled for Saturday, September 25th at the McLean County Fairgrounds, has been postponed. The planning committee made the decision to reschedule the event to a later date in Spring of 2022 because of concerns regarding the rising Covid numbers in younger kids, who at this point cannot be vaccinated, and for the safety of their families, the machine operators, and volunteers.

“The health and safety of the community and all those involved with Day of the Dozer is our top priority and at the forefront of all decisions at this time,” said Paul Segobiano, Director of Development for the Great Plains LIFE Foundation.  “It’s disappointing when this cherished event which is so anticipated by children here in the central Illinois area cannot continue as planned this year, but we look forward to coming back bigger and better next year, and offering a unique one-of-a-kind experience for kids.”

Tickets already purchased for this year may be refunded or will be good for the 2022 event.  For questions contact the Great Plains LIFE Foundation at 309-828-3406, or email
