About the Event:
Created by the Friends of Lake Forest Parks and Recreation Foundation in 2006, the Lake Forest Festival and Fireworks is an annual community event and fundraiser completely run by volunteers to provide a safe and fun environment for families celebrating Independence Day. Over the years we have brought in award-winning entertainers including The Village People, Dennis DeYoung, KC and the Sunshine Band, Eddie Money, Rick Springfield, Wynonna, and Lou Gramm. We are so grateful to our sponsors who have helped make this event a huge hit! If you would like to sponsor this year’s festival or other future events, please visit our Donate page.

Liverpool Legends will be the 1st performer. Liverpool Legends “The Complete Beatles Experience!” are four incredibly talented musicians and actors hand-picked by Louise Harrison- sister of the late George Harrison of The Beatles. Louise’s involvement in Liverpool Legends makes them the ONLY Beatles Tribute Band with a direct family link to the original Fab Four. “Each member of the group is so close to the originals that I often feel like I’m transported back in time with the lads. These are exactly the kind of fun loving quality musicians that my brother George would have loved to hang out with,” says Harrison. Liverpool Legends are the ONLY Beatles Tribute band ever to perform Beatles songs on a GRAMMY nominated album.
