Celebrating 20 Years of Hill Prairie Winery Feat. The Longmeyer Band

My how time flies.  Hill Prairie Winery opened for business in 2004 and we will be celebrating our 20th year on July 27, 2024.  We are hosting The Longmeyer Band from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m..  The Menard County Men's Club will be on hand to serve food, and Hill Prairie will offer all of the cold drinks that our customers have become accustomed to over those 20 years.  There will be a 50/50 drawing and it will include automatic entry to win a drawing for a Friday Night dinner for two and a pair of Dinner Theatre tickets.  Enter as many times as you like.  There is no cover charge for this event.  It is our way to say thank you for allowing us to serve you for the past 20 years.  Doors open at noon and music is 2-5.

Children are welcome.
