Become a 2019 Lakeside Fest Sponsor

Lakeside Festival is one of the largest and longest-running summer festivals of its kind in McHenry County – it’s the “granddaddy” of all festivals in our area! This annual hometown favorite is a four-day affair over the Independence Day weekend. Held on the beautiful grounds of the historic Dole Mansion and Lakeside Arts Park, adjacent to scenic Crystal Lake, Lakeside Festival features thrilling carnival rides and midway games, amazing live music, delicious food and beverages from local vendors, tours of the Dole Mansion, family-friendly activities for children, picnic tables and space to gather with friends and family, and much more! Lakeside Festival is hosted by Lakeside Legacy Foundation and is the largest fundraiser for Lakeside Legacy Foundation’s year-round arts, education, history, and community programs. Lakeside Festival has been honored multiple years as “Best Festival” by Shaw Media’s Best of the Fox Readers’ Choice Awards. Lakeside Legacy Foundation collaborates with the City of Crystal Lake to coordinate Lakeside Festival activities with the City of Crystal Lake’s Independence Day parade and fireworks displays.

Sponsorship of Lakeside Festival is a great way to…

HAVE FUN: Bring your friends, family, colleagues, volunteers, customers, and clients and enjoy fun, engaging, and educational activities, all while supporting the local artisans of this wonderful community!
