The Pekin Marigold Festival proudly welcomes John Ratzenberger as our 2018 Guest Celebrity to help us celebrate the festival theme: “Cheers to Marigolds.” John will be joining us on Saturday and Sunday of the festival, September 8th and 9th.

A multi-Emmy-nominated actor and accomplished screenwriter, director, producer and author, John Ratzenberger may be best known for playing mail carrier Cliff Clavin on the long-running NBC sitcom “Cheers.” Along with his eleven seasons on “Cheers”, John has worked in feature films, made appearances on numerous TV shows and commercials, but animation has been a natural home to John’s versatile vocal talents. He is the only actor to participate in every Pixar film, voicing the iconic characters of Mack the Truck, Hamm the Piggy Bank and his favorite, P.T. Flea. Due to John’s volume of film work, he is listed as the 6th most successful actor of all time in terms of box office receipts.

John Ratzenberger will be riding in the Marigold Festival Parade sponsored by Busey Bank, signing autographs at the Celebrity Tent sponsored by Kouri’s Pub and answering questions during a special Q & A Session.
