Approximately 47 miles outside of Woodstock, Illinois. Every year in late January or early February, the town hosts a Groundhog Day festival to commemorate not only the holiday but also the film of the same title starring Bill Murray that was filmed there. The annual event includes pub crawls, bingo, film trivia, a chili cookoff, storytime, film site tours, and movie screenings. Woodstock even has their own groundhog named Woodstock Willie who makes appearances during the festival.
