The Rotary Club of Downers Grove would like to thank all those who were involved with the 2017 Rotary GroveFest and its continuing success. The monies raised from this event go back into the community in supporting the many ways Rotary provides for local, regional and global causes.

Additionally, we sincerely appreciate the generous sponsorships, both large and small, which enable us to bring Rotary GroveFest to Downers Grove. We also celebrate the over 400 volunteers which represent thousands of hours of time given to plan and carry out this event.

We want to thank all the residents of Downers Grove and our guests from other communities in the area for their support, as well. This four day festival is a way of not only getting residents together but also a way of giving back to the community. After all… It's All About Community!

Looking forward to seeing you again next year!
