Paperfest is a Kim-Com Promotions event. Kim-Com Promotions is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that started back in 1989, by Dr. James Boots and Dennis Smits. Paperfest was named after the booming paper mills that brought life to the Fox River Valley. Now that the Kimberly Mill has closed, this name is a reminder of the community history we came from and the future we share.
The Paperfest planning committee is comprised of multiple subcommittees all working together to make sure this event runs smoothly.
Many people and businesses prefer to donate to 501(c)3 organizations for the tax benefits that are granted by the IRS. CLICK HERE to donate to Kim-Com Promotions (Paperfest).

Paperfest is a fun, community driven festival featuring fun for all ages through music, food, sports, family fun and much more! Proceeds raised at Paperfest are donated back into the community through various nonprofit and civic organizations in the Fox Valley. Spanning three days, it offers fun for all ages through music, sports, games and food.
Paperfest strengthens our community by utilizing the expertise and generosity of both volunteers and partners.
Paperfest is all about community! From the volunteers to the generous partners, the community comes together to have a great time and the proceeds are donated to local charitable organizations.
Over the past 30+ years, Paperfest has donated nearly $1,000,000 to more than 75 nonprofit, civic, and service organizations. Volunteer organizations are paid out an hourly rate for their services at Paperfest. This means the more the organization works, the more money they make.
Our goal is to provide a fun, family friendly, community festival as well as donate over $50,000 for the local non-profit organizations.
