August Events on Chicago's North Shore!

Back to school may be just around the corner, but there is still plenty of summer left to enjoy on Chicago's North Shore! From festivals to days at the museum to farmers markets and movies under the stars, you can count on your August being filled to the brim with events in Glencoe, Winnetka, Northbrook and the surrounding areas!

Be sure to mark the following on your calendar this month:

Ravinia Festival
Through September 17
418 Sheridan Road
Highland Park IL

As North America's oldest music festival, Ravinia holds over 140 different events throughout the summer, featuring a variety of genres. Now through September 17, you can catch acts like the GoGo's, Dolly Parton, Tony Bennett and more!

Garden Chef Series
Through October 9
Chicago Botanic Garden
Glencoe IL

Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis for these free demonstrations at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Here you can learn to cook with garden fresh ingredients with noted chefs sharing their recipes in a beautiful open-air amphitheater.

Northbrook Days
August 3-7, 2016
Village Green
Northbrook IL

Each year the Northbrook community puts on a 5-day festival for the local residents and those from surrounding areas. 100% of the proceeds from the event are channeled back into the community, so don't miss this opportunity to support a great North Shore cause! There will be grand prize drawings, live entertainment, rides, games, food, beverages and more!

Kite Festival
August 13-14, 2016; 10 AM to 3 PM
Chicago Botanic Garden

Movie in the Park

Hubbard Woods Park
Winnetka IL

Settle in for an evening under the stars as the Winnetka Park District presents a movie in the park! This event will feature the Traveling World of Reptiles from 6:30 to 7:30 where you can get up close and personal with reptiles and amphibians, before The Good Dinosaur movie begins at dusk!

Farewell to Summer Family Luau
August 27, 2016; 4 PM to 7:30 PM
Maple Street Beach

Say goodbye to summer in the best way possible! Lifeguards will be on duty until 6 PM and food, music and entertainment will be available throughout the duration of the event. From 6:30 to 7:30, you can even marvel over the live luau dance and fire show!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer on the North Shore and as always, feel free to reach out to me with any questions you have about buying or selling a home in Glencoe, Winnetka, Northbrook, Highland Park, Deerfield or the surrounding communities!
