It’s been called one of the biggest block parties in the Campton Hills area and this year we’ve added more!
Mark your calendars as the 8th annual United Fall Fest takes over the grounds of the Congregational United Church of Christ. The fest takes place September 8th from 3 pm to 10 pm. Admission is free!
The church is located at the corner of Fox Mill Boulevard and LaFox Road in Campton Hills. All of the events are organized by the Church in partnership with the Fox Mill Community and the Village of Campton Hills.
When the Fest first started in 2011 nearly 700 people came. Last year we saw double that number and this year….“We’re planning closer to 1,700,” says Mark Molloy, who leads the volunteer committee. “We really think of it now as the premier summer family event for our area.”
So what can one expect from this crowd pleasing event?
The Fest features a line-up of live music, a classic car show, a bags tournament, a kids’ corner full of fun, chaperoned activities, a reptile show, grilled foods to tempt your taste buds and several different drinks to wash it all down!
“There’s just so much going on,” says Ken Burg, one of the many volunteers behind the Fest.
We know how important our generous local sponsors and our local organizations are and because of them we can give back to our community.
This year proceeds benefit the Congregational Church’s charitable mission, which includes these local charities: CASA Kane County, the Elderday Center, Habitat for Humanity Pottawatomie Chapter, St. Charles Shelter Assistance, Tri-City Family Services and Tri-City Health Partnership.
We hope that you will join us September 8th for a day filled with fun, food and fellowship and make it a tradition every year! “United Fall Fest is like a big family reunion,” says Fest volunteer Tim O’Brien. “You see friends, you see neighbors, you see people you know from around town. There’s really nothing else like it.”
