Along our Great Rivers and Routes we've hosted a variety of events, big and small. This region plays host to NASCAR and countless NCAA events at the outstanding local facilities. Hundreds of amateur sporting events are held right here in the Metro East, just outside St. Louis -- from dance to baseball to wrestling and soccer. Our region's boundless natural resources allow for some of the best trail running, fishing, cycling, and boating the Midwest can offer. Take a look below at some of the upcoming and past events in southwest Illinois to see what makes this region so unique.
