Buffalo Grove Days started out in 1958 as a community picnic and over the years has grown to a five-day event (September 1-6, 2010) including a carnival, arts and crafts fair, parade, food tents, and much more. This year, the event is inaugurating BGpalooza, a free two-day outdoor music fest bringing bands from around the area. Performances will take place on Emmerich North Field on Saturday, September 4 from 2:00 PM-7:00 PM and Sunday, September 5 from 2:30 PM-7:00 PM.
