Visitors come to Union Grove from all around to celebrate Independence Day and show appreciation to military members and veterans.

Racine County Fair
Located just outside of the borders of Union Grove, the Racine County Fairgrounds is host to fairs and expos throughout the year – none bigger than the annual Racine County Fair. The fair is held over a five-day period in late July of each year and offers family-friendly attractions and activities.
Super Saturday & Union Grove Kiwanis Street Dance
Held in late summer of each year, Super Saturday is a day dedicated to family, community, fun and supporting local businesses. The day is capped off with live music of the Kiwanis Street Dance.
Union Grove Great Pumpkin Chuckin’ Fest
Where else can you watch teams catapult pumpkins into the air, while enjoying a BBQ competition, entertainment and games for kids? This annual fall-time event takes place at the Racine County Fair Grounds and offers free admission and parking. Organized by Greater Union Grove Area Chamber of Commerce.
