Crown Point Things to Do

Filled with history and beautiful surroundings, Crown Point has an ample amount of things to keep the whole family entertained.

The Lake County Fairgrounds host a large variety of festivals and entertainment throughout the year. In August, the exciting Lake County Fair comes to the fairgrounds. The 10-day fair is filled with carnival rides, horse shows, delicious food, live entertainment, animals and agricultural exhibits. 

Crown Point's charming downtown square is a hot spot for unique festivals and events. Celebrate the Fourth of July with Crown Point's hometown parade and fantastic fireworks show. The annual Corn Roast is the perfect way to enjoy the downtown area and eat delectable foods, including hot, buttered corn-on-the-cob. The lively St. Patrick's Day Celebration includes a nighttime parade with illuminated floats. During the summer months, the Crown Point Car Cruise, filled with classic cars, comes to the square every Thursday evening. On Saturdays, the Crown Point Farmers' Market fills the square with foods, crafts and music.

At the center of Crown Point's square sits the Old Lake County Courthouse. The historic courthouse boasts many interesting shops as well as the Lake County Historical Society Museum. The "Grand Old Lady," as it's known, was erected in 1878. It later became known as the "Marriage Mill" since Crown Point required no waiting period for marriage licenses. Many notable people, including Rudolph Valentino and Cassius Clay (Mohammed Ali), were married there. 

Treat yourself to the finest spa treatments at State of Mind Salon & Day Spa. Enjoy multiple golf courses or the disc golf championship course at Lemon Lake County Park. Or play with the family at Crown Point Family Fun Center, with mini golf, soccer and batting cages, go-karts and arcade games.
