The annual Strawberry Festival, a decades old tradition in downtown Long Grove, is returning June 25th through 27th after a year hiatus due to the pandemic. Following the new CDC and State reopening guidelines, organizers are bringing back the same full-scale event that annually has inspired so much fun to kick off summertime in the suburbs. Attendees of all ages can expect three days of strawberry-infused foods and drinks, live music, and family entertainment.
Like usual, the almighty strawberry is the star attraction at Strawberry Fest. Some of the area’s most popular restaurants, chefs, and vendors will pop-up shop to serve unique strawberry-centric cuisine. Featured items usually include things like strawberry BBQ sauces, deep fried strawberries on a stick, chocolate strawberry popcorn, strawberry kabobs, strawberry jams, strawberry fudge, funnel cakes with strawberries, strawberry smoothies, strawberry blintz, strawberry banana Nutella crepes, chocolate covered strawberries, strawberry donuts, strawberry shakes, strawberry ice cream, chocolate strawberry sundaes, and much more. A wide variety of non-strawberry-centric vendors will also be on-hand also dishing out other summertime delights.
