Mane & Taste events

Two do-not-miss events – the Mane Event and the Taste of Arlington Heights - are coming to the downtown, at Vail Ave. and Campbell St., on August 2 and 3.

The Mane Event will be held from 5 – 11 p.m. on Friday, August 2 and the Taste of Arlington Heights will be held from Noon – 11 p.m. on Saturday, August 3! Each event showcases food and refreshments from our local restaurants, live music, and children’s entertainment.

Important Notices for Both Events
Please refrain from bringing food or alcohol into the event area of Mane and Taste of Arlington Heights. Instead, sample the great array of food and beverages available from the more than 25 local restaurants participating in the event! Also, please do not set down blankets, tarps or chairs in Harmony Park to “save seats” for the live musical acts. The goal is to keep Harmony Park open for the public to enjoy prior to the start of the events. 

The Mane Event  is held on the streets of Vail and Campbell from 5 – 11 p.m. on Friday, August 2 and is planned by the Special Events Commission.
