Save the dates for the Million Week
Mane Event (yes, it is spelled M-A-N-E in reference to a horse’s mane) and the Taste of Arlington weekend kicks off Million Week in celebration of the upcoming Arlington Million, the premier race event held at Arlington International Racecourse on Saturday, August 15. Million Week begins at Vail & Campbell in downtown #ArlingtonHeights with the Mane Event on August 7th, followed by the Taste of Arlington on August 8th. Activities will be held at the Racetrack during the week leading up to the Arlington Million.
This block-party styled weekend showcases live music from favorite local bands, wonderful food from local restaurants, and kids’ entertainment.
Activities will also be held at Arlington Park during the week leading up to the Arlington Million, which takes place on Saturday, August 15th.
The Mane Event & Taste of Arlington Heights is presented by the Village’s Special Events Commission in cooperation with the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce which by the way is in the same building where we are located (Village Bank & Trust on Arlington Heights Rd.)
Make plans to join us on Friday, August 7th for the Mane Event; we will be present with lots of giveaways like every year. The weekend events both occur on Vail and Campbell in Downtown, and they combine to make one of the biggest weekend celebrations of the summer!
