Volunteers needed on Aug 23rd & 24th for the Palatine Street Fest!

Palatine Street Fest is a 3 day long family fun block party that draws crowds from all of the surrounding suburbs. There is food, games, music and entertainment. One of the favorite parts of StreetFest is the Kids Zone, a family area with games, inflatable moonwalks, face painting and more.

On August 23 and 24, the Algonquin Longhouse will have an information booth at the Palatine Street Fest to aid in our recruitment efforts. We need your help to make it all work!

Any tribes in need of new members should try to attend. StreetFest draws people from all around Palatine, including Barrington, Inverness, Long Grove, Arlington Heights, Rolling Meadows and Lake Zurich.
