The 2020 BH Stomp has been Postponed

The Old Settlers' have held the Stomp and Skamparoo here in Bishop Hill for 24 years under all sorts of conditions - sunny skies, pouring rain, even snow showers! This year though, the coronavirus has called a halt to the footrace.

The Old Settlers extend our sincere wishes to all for continued good health and safe passage in navigating society during the months ahead. As the protocol in dealing with the spread of coronavirus changes, we will modify the way we conduct our business. For now, our monthly meetings have been suspended. The Bishop Hill Stomp has been postponed until all threat of illness has passed. Those who have already applied will receive reimbursement by mail or refunded online.

We look forward to gathering again later this season with a renewed interest in celebrating that which matters most: our friends, our families, and our extraordinary community.

Should you have questions about scheduled events or rentals, please use the contact form to email us.
