Strawberry Festival Returns to Ring-in Summer in Historic Downtown Long Grove, June 24 – 26
The annual Strawberry Festival, a decades old tradition in downtown Long Grove, is returning in all its sweet summertime glory following a couple years hampered by the pandemic. The same full-scale event that has inspired so many thousands to turn out to the historic town year after year for decades is back June 24th through 26th. Attendees of all ages can expect three days of strawberry-infused foods and drinks, family games, and live music.
Like always, the almighty strawberry is the star attraction at Strawberry Fest. Some of the area’s most popular restaurants, cooks, and vendors will pop-up to serve unique strawberry-centric cuisine. Featured items usually include things like strawberry BBQ sauces, deep fried strawberries on a stick, chocolate strawberry popcorn, strawberry kabobs, strawberry jams, strawberry fudge, funnel cakes with strawberries, strawberry smoothies, strawberry blintz, strawberry banana Nutella crepes, chocolate covered strawberries, strawberry donuts, strawberry shakes, strawberry ice cream, chocolate strawberry sundaes, and much more. A wide variety of non-strawberry-centric vendors will also be on-hand dishing out other summertime delights.
Main Stage Music
For those who like to mix it up, Strawberry Fest 2022 also features live music and family entertainment. Non-stop tunes on multiple stages, from solo acts to touring bands, will take over downtown Long Grove on Strawberry Fest weekend. The annual lineup always ensures there will never be a dull moment for teens or grown-ups.
