We're Busy Planning for 2019! Join Us....

Holiday in the Grove is a festive community event that includes Breakfast with Santa, Candy Cane Lane, Carriage Rides, a Craft Fair and many other holiday activities throughout the day in Sugar Grove, Illinois. Holiday in the Grove is volunteer-ran and was created to continue to tradition of The Sugar Grove Community Christmas Festival.  Several community members have volunteered to step in and continue the tradition for our community. This event is held on the first Saturday of December each year.

Become a Volunteer In 2019

The success of this event depends solely on volunteers. Holiday In the Grove volunteers help the committee with setup and breakdown, prepare, cook and serve the food for the breakfast. They help by directing our guests to the various buildings and events of the day. We also have elves to help your children with their shopping and gift wrapping.
