Harvard Milk Days is the longest running festival in the state of Illinois.
It all began in the spring of 1942 when people got together to honor the area farmers for their "War Effort" of increasing milk and food production for the servicemen. At that time there were seven dairy companies within a 15-mile radius of Harvard and more milk was being produced than anywhere in the United States. Harvard became the self-proclaimed "Milk Center of the World!"
Join Congressional candidate Dennis Anderson and the Democratic Party for the Harvard Milk Days Parade. We will meet at 11:30 a.m. at 1105 Garfield St, in Harvard.
