Visit Lake County Launches Inaugural Lake County February Flavor Festival
With Over 100+ Locations Featured, the Reimagined Festival Provides Visitors with a Month to Savor Local Eats and Drinks

GURNEE, Ill – From February 1-29, Visit Lake County has combined the renowned Lake County Restaurant Week and Libation Trail initiatives into one taste-tempting, month-long event: The February Flavor Festival.

The 29-day drink and fare flagship program highlights 100+ restaurants, breweries, distilleries, and wineries, with many locations offering prix fixe menus and special offers, fare and libation pairings, live entertainment and other fun promotions to attract new guests and generate awareness.

The inaugural event highlighting the area’s vibrant culinary scene revolves around supporting Lake County’s local hospitality venues. The focus motivates residents and visitors alike to produce foot traffic to the cuisine makers in their hometowns as well as across the land of lakes.

Like prior Lake County Libation Trail and Restaurant Week campaigns, visitors are encouraged to “CHECK IN TO WIN” with two separate mobile applications. Upon visiting a participating location, guests will aim their phones at the QR codes to note their attendance. By checking in at five locations through February 29 at a Restaurant Month venue, restaurant-goers are entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a dinner/theatre overnight package at the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort and Marriott Theatre, a cooking class at The Joyful Gourmet or a gift card from a participating location. In the Libation Trail sweepstakes, patrons are entered for a long-sleeve T-shirt giveaway listing all the breweries, wineries, and distilleries.

“Lake County Flavor Festival is a great way to celebrate our county’s emerging cuisine and libation culture,” said Visit Lake County President Maureen Riedy. “We encourage everyone to come out and explore the many delicious offerings during this new month-long event

Foodies and cocktail connoisseurs are also encouraged to share their experience of the Flavor Festival utilizing the hashtags #LCFlavorFestival, #LCLibationTrail, #LakeCountyRW and/or #LetsGoLakeCounty.
