Three Distinct Weekly Events Coming To Highland Park

Three distinct events will be held on a weekly basis throughout the summer in Highland Park. These events will offer residents and visitors unique entertainment, shopping, and dining experiences.  New for summer 2017 is Ravinia Food Truck Thursdays and the Highland Park French Market.  Ravinia Food Truck Thursdays will feature approximately ten food trucks, neighborhood restaurants and live music in the Ravinia District. The Highland Park French Market will be located in Downtown Highland Park and will offer fresh produce and prepared food, crafts, and more. The Ravinia Farmers Market will return offering fresh produce, baked goods and flowers. The Ravinia Farmers Market, now in its 39th year, is under new management. It kicks off with North Shore’s largest organic plant sale benefiting the Organic teaching Garden program at Highland Park High School. The sale will only occur on opening day. Free public parking will be available for all events on street and in nearby municipal parking lots.
