Red Carpet Corridor


Planning is underway for a Festival on May 1, 2021 in order to safely celebrate 90 miles of Route 66 through Illinois! We will be releasing details as they become available.

Unique Travel Experience in the Corridor

Pontiac is a proud partner in the Red Carpet Corridor. The corridor is a 90-mile linear museum that runs along historic Route 66 from Joliet to Towanda. Each of the 13 communities along this stretch of the Mother Road offers the heritage traveler a unique Route 66 travel experience. 

Each year the towns which make up the Red Carpet Corridor join together on the first Saturday of May celebrating the history of Route 66.  For the Red Carpet Corridor Festival, each town puts together its own events and visitors are encouraged to take in all the sites and fun during the day.
