The festival is presented by the Springfield Park District with the support of The Rees Carillon Society and The Carillon Belles. Outdoor concerts are held each evening. The Friday firework display is absolutely incredible and a must see!
Seating is provided and there is large video screen at the base of the Carillon which allows the audience to view the playing keyboard and carillonist during the performance.
