McHenry’s Soberfest is an annual conference put on by the McHenry’s Soberfest Group of Alcoholics Anonymous Northern Illinois Area 20. If you are wanting to talk to someone about your or a loved one’s drinking or drug use, please see the links to our Friends.

McHenry’s Soberfest has meetings and activities for AA members, Al-Anon members, Alateens, and our guests.  There are AA and Al-Anon speakers Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Join us for our Saturday evening banquet and speaker.  Even if you don’t register for the banquet, you can still hear all the speakers and dance the night away.  There are even shops with recovery-related jewelry, clothing, and literature.
