Faith Coalition for the Common Good Presents:


217 Virtual Trivia Night

What is the "Springfield Horseshoe Festival"?

The "Springfield Horseshoe Festival" is a one of kind, remarkably Springfield experience that seeks to unite all of Springfield around everyone's favorite meal.... The Horseshoe Sandwich! The famous Horseshoe Sandwich is a national phenomenon that started right here in Springfield! As a way to unite Springfield and showcase our greatness, Faith Coalition for the Common Good invites you to participate in the 2nd Annual' "Springfield Horseshoe Festival".

Last year, the Faith Coalition for the Common Good, in cooperation with the Springfield Park District, hosted the First Ever "Springfield Horseshoe Festival": "Shoes and Shoes" at Lincoln Park. The famous Horseshoe Sandwich was prepared and sold by local restaurants and the Illinois Horseshoe Pitching Association organized a celebrity horseshoe pitching tournament. Due to the pandemic of COVID-19, we are holding a virtual event in lieu of our customary outdoor festival in the park.
