“Apple Festival is Long Grove’s biggest festival of the season. We’re also proud that Long Grove has been recognized as one of Chicagoland’s top 10 Open Spaces,” said Sharon Fine, Director of Community Development for The Village of Long Grove. “What a perfect weekend to experience the Village’s historic charm, great shopping, live music and entertainment, family activities, great food and drink and, of course, the changing leaves. Families come year after year to capture memories that they can share forever.”
New this year, Long Grove invites everyone to bring their cameras and stroll the village, while viewing their Historic Downtown District’s Amazing Scarecrows. Fun for ALL ages!
