Booths of vendors selling arts, crafts and food will descend on La Grange on Saturday and Sunday to sell their wares to people all over the area at the 37th Annual La Grange Craft Show.
If you're a fan of uniquely designed and handmade items, folk art, knickknacks and a lot of other "crafty" stuff, this event is for you.
Have a great time strolling the downtown streets and discovering hidden treasures.
The La Grange Craft Show takes place on Saturday and Sunday, July 9 and July 10 in downtown La Grange on La Grange Road between the train tracks and Cossitt Avenue. You'll also be able to find craft and art booths on Harris Avenue between La Grange Road and Ashland Avenue.
Saturday: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Where to Park:
For free parking, try the La Grange parking garage located next to just off La Grange Road between Harris Avenue and Cossitt Avenue. You can also park at or in other free village lots around town.
It's supposed to be a beautiful weekend—not too hot, but sunny with a good breeze. According to Weather.com, Saturday looks mostly sunny with a high of 87. Sunday will be partly cloudy with a high of 89.
Some things to keep in mind:
—Wear sunscreen. Even when the sun is hidden, UV rays are still beating down. Make sure you're protected with a high SPF, waterproof sunscreen lotion.
—Drink water. Walking around all day can leave you parched. Bring an extra bottle (we recommend a reusable one you can fill up if goes empty).
—Shop local. Even with all the vendors displaying items, you'll be in the wonderful Central Business District of downtown La Grange. Stop by a local ice cream shop, restaurant or boutique that have great items all the time.
What to do:
There's tons to do and see in downtown La Grange. After the craft show closes, stick around for the nightlife. There's lots of great places to get an ice cream cone, beer, cocktail, food, coffee and more.
