Calendar of Events

Next Weekend is just around the corner! Make plans for a night out with dinner and then head to a show at the Genesee Theatre. The kids will love looking at classic cars and movie cars at Volo Auto Museum or enjoy the outdoors at the Lake County Forest Preserve. With summer right around the corner, we can enjoy Lake County staples like Ravinia Festival and Six Flags Great America.

* All efforts have been made to verify information prior to publishing, however, changes do occur. Please contact event producers directly to verify times of operation, location and admission price.
