BenefitsLong Grove Business & Community Partners
The 29th Annual Strawberry Fest is the granddaddy of Long Grove’s signature festivals, drawing close to 40,000 visitors to the historic business district for the 3-day event. It is considered one of the premier outdoor festivals in the Chicagoland area.
One of nature’s most succulent summer treats, strawberries have the power to transport adults back to their lazy childhood days, and help children create sweet memories of their own. Festival-goers can enjoy lip-smacking strawberry smoothies, ice cream, fresh and sugary strawberry donuts, baked goods, and dipping stations, all supplied with farm-fresh berries. For the adults, wine pairings will raise the berry-tasting experience to a more mature level.A Long Grove staple, Apple Haus is always a crowd pleaser with their strawberry apple pies and other apple concoctions.
Family Friendly Activities
For the kids, Radio Disney and other kid-friendly media sponsors will be on hand. Little strawberry lovers can have their faces painted; enjoy pony rides, and play games in the kid-friendly booths. Other fun activities for the youngsters include a ride on a spinning apple, a mini carousel, a train, a blow up clown filled with balloons, a jumping castle and a huge blowup slide. The Strawberry Festival definitely caters to the little ones!
