We Are Proud to Support Our Friends Organizing the ‘Bourbonnais Friendship Festival’

Friendship… how sweet it is! Founded in 1976 by a group of individuals committed to bringing the community together, the Bourbonnais Friendship Festival celebrates an essential asset of the Village of Bourbonnais - the people.

Mark your calendars for June 21 – June 25, as the festival will be in full force during those days. Joining in the fun not only offers entertainment for the entire family, but also a chance to support funding of various local community projects.

Our Partnership with the Festival

At First Community Insurance and Annuity Center, we are proud to serve as a trusted neighbor to residents of Kankakee County. Along with insurance protection, our agency strives to assist fellow community members in any way we can. This focus on involvement is a big reason we decided to be a friend to the Bourbonnais Friendship Festival.

When attending the event, you will probably notice our agency showcased as a ‘Main Stage Sponsor.’ We are excited to be recognized in this manner, and hope you enjoy all the acts scheduled to perform.
