Event Description:
The sights, sounds and smells of a favorite summer tradition return to La Grange when the annual carnival comes to town from Friday, June 2 through Sunday, June 4. This lively community carnival has been a La Grange tradition for over three decades and features spectacular rides with LED light displays, family favorites like bumper cars and Ferris wheel, games of chance, engaging games for children, and food concessions. 
It is staged on Harris Avenue between La Grange Road and Ashland Avenue and presented by
Express Med Spa La Grange, along with support from the Village of La Grange. Other carnival sponsors are Boyce Chiropractic, Chills Italian Ice and Mathnasium of La Grange.
Carnival hours are 5 PM to 10 PM on Friday, noon to 10 PM on Saturday, and noon to 9 PM on Sunday. Ticket sales will stop 30 minutes before closing.
Beer and wine can be purchased at Palmer Place Restaurant and Biergarten and MAKS House La Grange and carried into the carnival. Palmer Place will feature live music on Friday and Saturday with Triple Replay (June 2) beginning 7pm and The Vaughan Building (June 3) beginning 7pm.
The carnival is the traditional kick-off to a season of special summer events run by the LGBA including the Summer Art Project, the La Grange Craft Fair, the annual Sidewalk Sale and West End Arts Festival, plus Endless Summerfest which is organized along with the Park District of La Grange. It is a major source of funding for the La Grange Business Association; dozens of
local business owners volunteer to work in the ticket booths and information booth throughout the weekend.
