The annual Summer Sunset Festival will be held at Sunset Park, located at 5200 Miller Road, over Labor Day weekend from September 2-4, 2022. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the incorporation of the Village of Lake in the Hills, and the Summer Sunset Festival Committee plans to recognize the milestone throughout the celebration.

“We are thrilled to celebrate the Village’s 70th anniversary as we host the Summer Sunset Festival,” said Festival Chairperson/Trustee Diane Murphy. “Our end-of-summer celebration offers a wonderful opportunity to experience the Village’s strong spirit of community.”

The Summer Sunset Festival Committee plans to host the carnival, wine tent, Rec2U Kids’ Zone, food and drink vendors, and live music throughout the celebration. Special events will include a car show, bags competition, craft fair and business expo, parade, and Sunday’s finale fireworks.

Festival admission is free; attendees are welcome to purchase food, drinks, and carnival wristbands, as well as items for sale at Sunday’s craft fair and business expo. The festival’s main stage will provide a focal point for entertainment as various bands play throughout the weekend.

“The Summer Sunset Festival Committee is excited to recognize the 70th anniversary of the Village’s incorporation as we celebrate,” said Village President and festival committee member Ray Bogdanowski. “This year’s festival will be one to remember.”

Local businesses have the opportunity to sponsor the festival through five sponsorship packages or a custom option to suit their promotional needs. Community members are invited to volunteer to support the festival.
