A Few Street Closures For West Dundee’s Spectacular Sept. 14-16 Heritage Fest

West Dundee’s spectacular community festival Heritage Fest is set for Friday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 16.

While relatively few street closures are needed to facilitate the event, there are potential impacts to area residents and motorists.

  • Lincoln Avenue, North First Street and the 100 block of Washington Street will be closed Friday morning through Sunday evening.
  • South Second Street from Main Street to Liberty Street will be closed from about 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

See 2018 Community Events Schedule & Impacts at wdundee.org for more information.

East Dundee bowed out of the event this year, so there will be no street closures there.
