South Elgin Special
Events and Culture


South Elgin has a full calendar of special events every year. The highlight of every summer - South Elgin Riverfest - is held in August as a big village party. Plenty of music, rides, games and the best hometown cooking anywhere delight the crowds throughout the weekend event.

Located on Rt. 31, just south of the bridge, the Trolley Museum offers a nostalgic trip back to an era when the electric trolley car formed a vital part of American life. The Trolley Museum also sponsors various events throughout the year.

In early September, the South Elgin Chamber of Commerce and D.A.N.K. Fox Valley German-American Club present the annual Fox Valley Oktoberfest. This three-day event is a late summer special, as the festival showcases authentic German culture. Thousands from throughout the Fox Valley and surrounding areas gather for live music, carnival rides, and best of all, the food.

A menu of traditional German cuisine is available as is an authentic German bar menu.
