Nothing says summer like a festival! Come out and enjoy the delicious tastes of summer with seasonal foods, music and family fun in the quaint downtown of Long Grove June 24-26 this year! Copy_of_Long_Grove-1.png

This festival has long celebrated the quintessential fruit of the summertime: the strawberry! But that’s not the only taste of summer you’ll get to enjoy this year.  You will find strawberry donuts, fresh roasted corn, traditional fair treats, and more! There are plenty of yummy things to keep your stomach full as you enjoy all the festival has to offer.

There are lots of family-friendly activities to participate in as well. The kids will enjoy a bubbler which blows giant bubbles they will love to chase after and pop. Local business will have crafts and activities for kids to do too. Last year, kids build strawberry baskets, guided by crafters from the Long Grove Home Depot. If you’re feeling competitive, get yourself involved in the strawberry pie eating contest. This always proves to be entertaining and delicious! Finally, there’s a strawberry scavenger hunt the whole family can complete together. Enjoy the live music, food offerings, and beautiful weather we’ve waited so long to arrive. The time you spend at the Long Grove Summer Festival promises to be a day well-spent!
