A Huge Thank You!

Galesburg Railroad Days takes the involved efforts of all kinds of people and tens of thousands of dollars. Between the hundreds of man hours spent planning, fundraising, budgeting, marketing, setting up, tearing down and cleaning up, no job is considered too small. It takes a whole fellowship of people to keep this an annual event for our local community. Railroad Days has become a tradition as well as Galesburg Staple.

We fully intend to continue evolving forward; keeping this event new and exciting for everyone. Please know we put our hearts in this every year and we appreciate all the volunteers & sponsors that selflessly give their support. 

Thank you.
