The quaint and cozy suburb of Long Grove is tucked away just north of Chicago, and each fall they celebrate the quintessential fruit of the season…the apple! This fall visit the Long Grove Apple Festival!


Visitors to the festival can expect to find an assortment of activities to entertain every member of the family. Browse the craft booths from local artists, enjoy food offerings, like apple cider donuts and cider, from Long Grove area restaurants. The festive atmosphere is capped off with live music, and you’re feeling competitive (and hungry), you can partake in an apple pie eating contest! There are plenty of kids’ activities too!

This festival is the perfect way to kick off the fall season, so make sure to plan a visit the weekend of September 23-25. It’s bushels of fun!
