The Barrington Lions Club has been hard at work preparing for the community’s annual 4th of July Festival coming up from July 3rd through the 6th complete with brats, bands, beer & more! Fun for the whole family awaits with live music, food & drink, family fun including rock walls, bounce house, bungee & more PLUS a Tribute Day to thank our first responders and members of the US military.

They’ll be serving up plenty of food at the fest including brats, hot dogs, burgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, pulled pork, chips, ice cream plus plenty of beverages to keep you cool including water, gatorade, soda, wine and beer to go with those brats!

Location? Look for the big tent in Metra’s north commuter parking lot in downtown Barrington, just south of Main Street. The fest is free up until 5:00 p.m. After that, there’s a $5 cover for anyone 18 and older. Learn more at
