Plant Seeds of Summer at Long Grove's Strawberry Fest
Strawberry season is surely something to celebrate and what better way to do so than at Long Grove's annual Strawberry Fest. Mark the true beginning of summer munching and sipping on strawberry sensations in Long Grove's Historic Downtown from June 21-23.
Strawberry Fest is one of Long Grove's most well-loved events that you'll want to get your hands on...literally. Food tents will offer every dessert you can imagine, ranging from shortcakes to ice cream sandwiches to crepes (all of which, of course, feature the fest's star ingredient). Other notable recipes include chocolate-covered strawberry popcorn, strawberry caesar salad, and strawberry BBQ sauce to top off any sandwich.
The festival, perfect for all ages, allows little ones to get a strawberry painted on their cheek as they enjoy a strawberry donut while parents savor a glass of Country House's strawberry sangria or a pint of Red Headed Step Child (Buffalo Creek Brewery's German Strawberry Blond).
Strawberry Fest will also feature a carnival, live music, and pie-eating contests. And while there is no actual strawberry picking at Strawberry Fest, farm-fresh strawberries are available to purchase on site.
Strawberry Fest is located at 308 Old McHenry Road in Long Grove and will be open on Friday, June 21 from 11 a.m.-11 p.m., Saturday, June 22 from 10 a.m.-11 p.m., and Sunday, June 23 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Tickets are $5 per person per day, and kids twelve and under are free. Unlimited rides at the carnival can be purchased for $20.

Make sure to attend Long Grove's Strawberry Fest June 21-23 and watch your sweet, strawberry dreams come to fruition.
