Mattoon Bagelfest

Wait, WHAT?? 7eventh Time Down at Mattoon Bagelfest? Thursday, July 18th, a FREE concert in Peterson Park.

7eventh Time Down sings “God Is on the Move” and “The 99”

When the Bagel Factory was new to the Midwestern town of Mattoon, owner Murray Lender hosted a free bagel breakfast for the City of Mattoon. That was the beginning of the local love affair with the bagel and the beginning of the Bagelfest. Today the breakfast has evolved into a 5- day festival that celebrates the best of the Mattoon community. Join us for the music, the food, and the fun!
