Sham-Rock Shuffle (5K) & Shindig in Dixon

Run, Party, Parade

On March 16, from 9 am-3 pm, the 5th annual Sham-Rock Shuffle (5K) & Shindig is back and better than ever. This event started in 2015 as a fundraiser for the Dixon Family YMCA Strong Kids Campaign. Annually more than 300 runners and spectators participate.

New in 2019

This run kicks off the race season with an improved race path and—new this year—a FREE after party event in the Bean Blossom parking area. The Bean Blossom Parking Lot sits in the center of town overlooking the Rock River. It includes music by local musicians, children’s games and activities, local merchant vendors, food vendors, and more.

The race starts at the log home on Lincoln Statue Drive and with a new finish on River Road.

The event leads right into the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade, ensuring a great family fun day in picturesque downtown Dixon.

Enjoy this family-friendly day.
