  All Day Smoke on the River   Like the event itself, the reputation for Quincy's Smoke on the River barbecue contest continues to grow among pit masters. "We have a good reputation for being right on the river," 2012 event Chairman Art Awerkamp said. "They like that they're on pavement and not in the grass like they are at other events. They like the atmosphere of the event." The event, sponsored by the Quincy Exchange Club, has more than doubled in size since its inception seven years ago. Last year's event drew 39 participants. Once again, Smoke on the River will feature music and activities in addition to all the food. The event features pit masters from Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Indiana. Watching the teams set up shop, Awerkamp said, is one of his favorite parts of the weekend. "It's fun to see guys with this huge equipment roll in," he said. "It's just a hobby for them." Certified judges will be taste-testing the barbecued offerings from Smoke on the River contestants. The grillers will be fighting for a top prize of $6,500.

AIDS and both its physical and emotional complications pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel; Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble; Benjamin has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends; and Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general, always behind the camera recording events but never playing a part.

Rent is the cutting-edge musical, based on Puccini’s opera La Boehme that electrified a whole generation of theatergoers. Rent tells the story of seven friends in the AIDS-ravaged New York City of the 1990s: Roger, Mimi, Tom, Angel, Maureen, Joanne and Mark share their struggle to support themselves and celebrate their lives in spite of the crises that confront them, from shifting romantic entanglements to preserving their artistic integrity to the life-and-death struggle with a disease that is threatening almost everyone they know. Through its powerful rock score, RENT explores the lives of a community of young artists who choose to celebrate life while coping with disease and poverty.

  12:00PM 5:00PM SOB Festival   Other cities have craft beer festivals. Why not Springfield? It was a casual conversation between a few local Springfield business owners, who then realized that, with a little bit of teamwork, they could make it happen. The organizers simply wanted to bring a quality beer fest to Springfield, support Midwest craft brewers and have a good time! In addition, they decided to donate all profits to a local Springfield or Sangamon County charity. The first Springfield Oyster and Beer Festival, held September 11, 2010, was a great success, and so much fun, they decided to do it again! The 2011 event featured over 50 local and nationally-recognized craft beer vendors, oysters, other seafood selections, and traditional “pub grub,” too.

In addition, the historic interpreters of the 114th Illinois Volunteer Infantry will appear at the tomb from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to give visitors a look at what life was like in the Union Army. The “Spirits of the Civil War” events begin at 1 p.m. with Tom Emery, a freelance writer and historical researcher from Carlinville. In “Eddie: Lincoln’s Forgotten Son,” he’ll look at the life of Edward Baker Lincoln, the second son of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln, who died in 1850 before the age of 4. At 2 o’clock, two African-American heroes of the Civil War will be brought back to life. Andrew Jackson Smith was a fugitive slave who made his way to Clinton, Ill., and then to Boston, where he joined the 55th Massachusetts Infantry. Smith was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor by President Bill Clinton in 2001. Martin Delany, a recruiter, was one of the very few African-Americans who became officers during the Civil War. He once met with Lincoln to discuss the role of black soldiers. Smith is portrayed by his grandson, Andrew Bowman. Delany is portrayed by Khabir Shareef of the Storyteller’s Drum from Indianapolis, Ind. And at 3 o’clock Cathy Mosley presents “A New Home in Sangamon,” a look at the lives of immigrants settling in Sangamon County during the 1860s. Mosley brings 26 years of performing experience to delivering the stories of these settlers.

This exhibit was produced by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and is sponsored with the Looking for Lincoln Heritage Coalition. The events are sponsored by the Lincoln Monument Association and the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, which operates the Lincoln Tomb.
