Calendar of Events for Lake County, Illinois - Visit Lake County - Official Travel Site

Calendar of Events

Next Weekend is just around the corner! Every season in Lake County creates long-lasting memories. While we get through this public health crisis together, several of our events have turned virtual. You can experience Lake County from the comfort of your home on our Lake County @Home page. Have you been staring at your computer for too long? Take a social distancing adventure through nature at one of the Lake County Forest Preserves or our state natural areas like Illinois Beach State Park, Chain O'Lakes State Park or Volo Bog State Natural Area. Dine on the delectable bites by eating alfresco or devour world-class cuisine in the comfort of your home with curbside pickup, takeout or delivery. Our local wineries, breweries and distilleries offer sumptuous spirits, vibrant vinos and breathtaking brews compliments of the Lake County Libation Trail. All of this and so much more as Lake County entities reopen.
