How do you like your apples? Fresh? Baked in pies? Dipped in chocolate or caramel? Candied? Are you drooling yet (We know you are)? How ever you like them, we have them. Long Grove’s Apple Fest is known for the apple pies, donuts, caramel dipped to candied apples, apple wine, sangria, and more! In addition to all of the delightful apple specialties, you can even try some options right off the menu at our local hometown restaurants. What’s a Long Grove fest without a stage full of great rhythm and sounds showcasing all your favorite styles of music? We’re again curating artisans in the area to come and showcase their wares and talents. Indulge yourself (and your taste buds) with three fun-filled days that the entire family (including your fur-baby) can enjoy. We will see you there! If you have any questions or would like to participate, please reach out to…

Well behaved, leashed dogs are permitted as long as their family brings them water and waste bags.
