This year’s fest takes place on
July 19, 20 & 21, 2019

It began in the summer of 1942, partly in celebration of the victories of World War II, volunteer and service organizations came together to establish what we know today as Alpine Fest™. The Lions Club with it’s newly established park in downtown Lake Zurich afforded a prime location for this event.

Over the years, as more and more people became active in the Lions Club, the carnival grew. Opens Friday night with and draws more than 10,000 people per day to the park. For three days of carnival rides, games, food, family events and entertainment.

There will not be a Sunday Parade in 2019.

 

Conducting this festival on the third weekend in July each year requires an enormous amount of planning, a major financial investment in food, bands, tents, and carnival entertainment, it also requires the dedicated team of Lake Zurich Lions Club members to make and sell all the food, pop, funnel cakes, cotton candy, snow cones, pizza, pretzels, beer & wine, and thank you to the hundreds of other volunteers that help from the community.
