Chocolate Fest in Long Grove starts May 17th
Chocolate Fest in Historic Downtown Long Grove - 308 Old McHenry Road, Long Grove, IL 60047
Chocolate Fest is one of my family's favorite events to attend every year! It is the first big festival that Long Grove hosts annually and it brings visitors from near and far. There is something to do for all ages and is a great family event. It kicks off this weekend on Friday, May 17th and runs until May 19th. Chocolate Fest is for chocolate lovers of all ages and the price of admission is just $5 per person and children under 12 receive free admission.
Rest assured your sweet tooth will be satisfied! Famous Long Grove Confectionery will be serving frozen hot chocolate, chocolate dipped strawberries (my personal favorite), and mighty chocolate donuts. Local merchants and other vendors will be offering everything from chocolate goodies and beverages to BBQ, so make sure to come with an appetite!
Children and adults who are still big kids at heart can enjoy the carnival rides and the activities in Towner Green. If you are feeling competitive, enter the hot dog or pie eating contests! Also make sure to check out all of the live performances that will be happening throughout the festival. Favorite bands that will be performing are Sixteen Candles and 7th Heaven.
