Hello from the Summer Sunset Festival organizing committee, and thanks for your interest in the 2014 event. This is the 14th year for the Festival which runs August 29th, 2014 through August 31st 2014. The Festival has become a huge and popular community event.

You can bring the kids and enjoy events like the Parade and Kids' Korner. All ages will love the Tilt-a-Whirl, Ferris Wheel and other Carnival Rides, and we have several rides for the little ones, too. This year the Carnival will offer wrist bands for $25.00 from 5pm to 9pm on Saturday and Sunday, this is in addition to the normal wrist bands being offered for $20.00 on Friday from 3pm to 7pm, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4pm. With or without the kids, come enjoy the Live Music on Friday, Saturday or Sunday nights. We invite you to join us this year at the Summer Sunset Festival WineTasting event which will be held all 3 nights this year.

Stroll through the Business & Craft Showcase on Saturday, with exhibitors of home-made, quality items, and see what local businesses have to offer. Then stick around for delicious Food from some of the area's finest restaurants.

The Summer Sunset Festival is FREE to enter to enjoy live music every evening on the main stage and most other events. Attractions you can spend money on are Food, Beverages, and the Carnival.

Be sure to be at Sunset Park on Sunday night for McHenry County's best Fireworks show. Bring a blanket and some lawn chairs, because there is lots of room just south of the parking area to sit and watch the display, which will be almost directly overhead.
