Food booths run by local non-profit organizations and offer a wide variety of choices, typically Italian beef, steak kabobs, chicken and dumplings, hot dogs, walking tacos, curly fries, funnel cakes, lemonade, and more.
A booth serving wine and beer is also on site. DAR hosts their annual used book sale with thousands of books and very low prices and there are a variety of craftsmen selling their wares.
Children’s activities include an art activity booth and games.
The purpose of the festival is to promote Leclaire’s history, and to that end there are displays of photos, and literature about Leclaire available including walking tour brochures.
There is also a narrated trolley tour of the historic district that runs throughout the afternoon on the half hour from the Friends of Leclaire booth. A display of vintage tractors and farm equipment can be found on the Madison Avenue side of the park.
