Long Grove Festivals
Today, the Long Grove Business & Community Partners host a
series of free festivals that draw visitors from across the country.
The festivals feature food, entertainment, and merchant offerings
that match each festival's theme.
The festival season kicks off with The Long Grove Chocolate Festival
the weekend before Mother's Day (the first Sunday in May).
The signature festival is the Long Grove Strawberry Fest, celebrating
its 25th year in 2007.
The other major festival is October's Apple Festival where the
early Autumn weather and changing leaves combine to give the village
a warm and nostalgic feel.
Other events include an Art Festival (August), Greek Days (August),
the Irish Days (Labor Day), and OktoberFeast. More about Long
