Calendar of Events

Next Weekend is just around the corner! Every season in Lake County creates long-lasting memories. Take an 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. Peruse the calendar of events to see what's going on this month and beyond in the land of lakes!
