Plans are being finalized for FoxFireFest, Elgin’s new art and culture event, taking place at Festival Park from August 3-5th. Among the entertainment and fun activities, one of the most important aspects of any festival is the food selection, and FoxFireFest has a stellar line-up of area food vendors offering a wide selection of dishes.
The following vendors will be included at the festival:
