Long Grove Live
Historic Long Grove recently kicked-off Illinois’ Phase Four reopening plan with a successful outdoor pop-up movie and is continuing the summertime fun with Long Grove Live – an ongoing weekend concert series spread throughout four different areas downtown. Presented by the Historic Downtown Long Grove Business Association, the same group behind Chocolate Fest, Strawberry Fest and other notable festivals, the free music program on Saturdays and Sundays from now through the end of August symbolizes the return of Long Grove as a shopping and entertainment destination. The Historic Downtown Long Grove Business Association is following recommended State guidelines for Long Grove Live weekends, including social distancing, mask wearing and the implementation of hand sanitation stations.
The feel-good vibes play on from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday with live music echoing through every corner of historic downtown Long Grove. People of any age are invited to stop into a boutique, restaurant or café, or simply wander the picturesque village, and discover the musical genre that suits them best. Whether it be Country, Rock, Jazz or Blues, music lovers can find varying original acts and cover bands helping set the summer tone simultaneously. The vast range of musicians and different genres come together each weekend at four rotating venues throughout town.
The Long Grove Live family of talented musicians play on a rotation and include names like: Strawdawg, Colin Cimmarusti, Social Cue, Orlando Pena, The Corner Boys, James and Friends, Ken Kuhn (from Split Hook Band), E Man, Lori Lewis, Glen Murschel, Juhn Ludy, and Jack and Rachel.
