Shoe Fest is proud to announce the lineup for the 5th annual festival.  Shoe Fest will once again be held at the beautiful and scenic Camp Shaw Waw Nas See in Manteno, IL (less than 1 hour south of Chicago), Labor Day weekend (September 4, 5 & 6).  Jam packed with events for both adults and kids, Shoe Fest will be loaded with family friendly and kids activities, special music sets for the kids, family camping and more – so bring the kids along or take them to Grandma’s and set out on your own, there is something for everyone!  In addition to the great music and activities, Shoe Fest once again encourages you to enjoy the amazing surroundings; swim in the creek, dance among the water fall, and enjoy nature walks along the Kankakee State Park.

Tier 2 3 day passes are on sale now at, RV spots are still available although cabin rentals are already SOLD OUT.  Tier 2 will sell out quickly!  We encourage you to be a part of the festival and volunteer! Be sure to connect with us on Facebook to keep in line with lineup additions, news, and our usual antics.
