The Northwest Suburban Republican Family Picnic will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, at Busse Woods Forest Preserve, Grove 27, in Elk Grove Village.

Tickets are $10 per family if purchased in advance online at and include food and drink -- hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled corn, soda, water and beer -- as well as access to the farm petting zoo, face painting, police K9 show and inflatable bounce castle for the kids. The Chicago Bears season opener will be playing on a big screen in the pavilion.

The event is hosted by Republican township organizations in Barrington, Elk Grove, Hanover, Schaumburg and Wheeling townships. Sponsors say they have a "big tent" philosophy and welcome Republicans, Tea Party Patriots, independents and deficit-conscious Democrats.

The ticket price will increase to $25 on the day of the event.
