Strawberry Festival Rings in Summer in Historic Downtown Long Grove, June 23–25

Sweet summertime fun returns when Strawberry Festival, an annual family tradition, takes over historic downtown Long Grove June 23rd through 25th. The highlight of the summer fest season that inspires thousands to turn out to Long Grove year after year for decades is upping the ante for 2023. Attendees of all ages can expect three days of strawberry-infused foods and drinks, carnival rides, family activities, and live music on three stages.

As, the almighty strawberry is the star attraction at Strawberry Fest. Some of the area’s most popular restaurants, cooks, and vendors pop-up shop to serve unique strawberry-centric cuisine. A wide variety of non-strawberry-centric vendors will also be on-hand dishing out other summertime delights.

Historic Downtown Long Grove

The new and improved historic downtown Long Grove, now construction-free after a major multi-year beautification rehab, is known for its wide array of independent, family owned and operated restaurants and stores.  Strawberry Fest marks the kickoff to summer shopping season in town, with local merchants featuring their own sweet summertime specials throughout the event weekend.  Visitors during fest weekend are invited to explore the recently beautified village and discover what makes Long Grove so flavorful.

Strawberry Festival’s organizing group, the Historic Downtown Long Grove Business Association, is a not-for-profit organization led by a team of elected volunteers that represent and serve the Long Grove historic district businesses and property owners, as well as the residents of the village. By hosting memorable activities and events, they are able to support the interests of members, enhance the community, and encourage the use and preservation of the historic village.
