Naperville Ale Fest  

The Naperville Ale Fest will be Naperville’s first craft beer festival.  The inaugural festival will take place on Saturday, July 20, 2013.

Situated on the grounds of Naper Settlement, with Downtown Naperville as a backdrop, it is the ideal setting to experience craft beer.  The festival will feature over 180 unique beers from craft breweries around the country.

The festival will also feature food from some of Naperville’s best restaurants and catering companies. Live music will accompany the craft beer and culinary celebrations, and one can further enhance their craft beer experience by attending one of the home brewing seminars.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

An Eclectic Theater Company Production
It’s a rip-roaring, laugh-a-minute, wild ride through the famed works of William Shakespeare. No need to sit through all three parts of Henry VI, or endure the over 4,000 lines of Hamlet – we’ve got all 37 plays for you right here, in under two hours!

From the balcony scene of Romeo and Juliet, to the witches of Macbeth, to Hamlet’s soliloquy, all the Shakespearean highlights are covered… though maybe not quite as you remember them. “The gung-ho vitality is impossible to resist,” raves The New York Times and New York Daily News calls the show “a fantasia of zany energy.” Featuring Metropolis favorites Adam Kander, Andrew Pond and Michael Woods, it’s a summer must-see!  Rated PG-13

Check it out at the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights.

Plainfield Fest 2013

Nothing says festival like the smell of fried dough and the cool, refreshing taste of fresh-squeezed lemonade. Plainfield Fest attracts the best local food vendors to offer a great variety for every appetite.

The entertainment stage is the hub of Plainfield Fest. Long-lost friends gather in the beer tent and around the stage to relax, listen to great music, and reconnect.

Join the Plainfield Fest beer tent for a sports bar-themed afternoon of fun in the sun, including autograph signings by retired professional Chicago athletes, sports memorabilia, a huge bags tournament, peanuts and cracker jacks, and much, much more!
