Fox Crossing Stringband
This all-female bluegrass group from Chicago has been winning hearts with their beautiful harmonies, original songwriting, and entertaining stage presence ever since forming in November 2016. Following their debut performance at Winter Roots Festival in February 2017, they’ve gone on to perform at many festivals and events across the Midwest.

Here are some nice Facebook reviews:
“One of the best local bands! So glad to have 'em!”

“Heard y'all this past summer keep up the great work and I would pay to see y'all perform again.”

“Babegrass for the masses! Such a fun, soulful, and happy sound coming from these 4 beauties. The first time I saw them, I had chills. True talent!!!”


“The weather is cooperating this year so we are really looking forward to a fantastic event. We’ve earned the reputation for treating the breweries well, so we have become a favorite destination for brewers and brewery representatives, which is also a big reason why we attract a dedicated group of attendee’s, as well. We are looking forward to hosting another great event this year,” said Bruce Dir, Festival Founder/Host and Owner-Brewer-Tighthead Brewing Co.

The Mundelein Craft Beer Festival (MCBF) is organized by Mundelein Community Connection in cooperation with Tighthead Brewing Company and the Village of Mundelein. Thanks to the close relationship with Bruce Dir of Tighthead, the MCBF has a reputation as a “brewers’ brew fest.”

Mundelein’s Craft Beer Fest’s Plaza Circle location on the Village Hall grounds just north of the Metra lot has proven to be a fantastic setting for the festival. There’s great parking with easy in and out access and the space is large.
