  • Pride of the Fox / Riverfest- (early June) Celebrating the Fox River with water ski shows, sand sculptures, live bands, a dog agility competition and the always fun Dragon Boat races
  • Kane County Fair- (July) A look at Kane County’s agricultural heritage.  Attractions include live music and exhibitions from the local 4-H group
