Coronavirus cancels 2020 Grande Levée

The Vandalia Grande Levée scheduled for June 19-20 at the Vandalia Statehouse State Historic Site has been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The annual Grande Levée is a free family event reminiscent of the receptions held during the 1800s to honor government dignitaries and important visitors at the Vandalia Statehouse, located at 315 W. Gallatin St. in Vandalia.
Organizers expect to renew the Grande Levee at the Vandalia Statehouse in 2021.
The event is co-sponsored by the Old Capitol Foundation, Vandalia Tourism Commission and Looking for Lincoln.
The Vandalia Statehouse State Historic Site remains closed at this time.
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources will continue to work with the Governor’s Office and the Illinois Department of Public Health to determine which state sites can reopen safely for public use.
