What says "summer" more than a small town festival? Libertyville Days is all that is good about small town America and more wrapped in an annual town square street celebration with food, beer garden, carnival, entertainment and other fun activities for all ages. Proceeds to benefit the Libertyville Civic Center. Let's be honest... we had you at "food" and "beer garden" didn't we? The Libertyville Civic Center Foundation is a non-profit organization that manages the Libertyville Civic Center, a two story building with multiple gathering spaces; offering the opportunity for Libertyville and its surrounding community residents to host an array of different charitable, civic and social events at extremely affordable rates. On the first day of the fest, Loose Connection (Rock and Blues) open for Modern Day Romeos (Classic Rock and Pop) on the main stage. The main stage is usually located on Church Street, near the public library and the town square. We will update here as soon as the location is announced. There is usually a large area in front of the stage for dancing! We will have our usual yellow happy face balloon to mark the spot where we are set up. Please bring a folding chair and your personal comfort items for an outdoor event. Carry in food and beverage is not allowed. There will be a number of vendors providing your favorite refreshments. ATMs are nearby if you need them. 4 hour free parking is available in the Church Street public lot, or the Lake Street public lot and garage. This may be subject to change if announced by Libertyville Police Department. The Libertyville METRA station is a short walk away from the venue and we encourage you to use public transportation if at all possible.
