Most special events in Oak Park are hosted by business associations and not-for-profit organizations. Information on many of these events typically is posted on the calendar of Vist Oak Park, which serves Oak Park and several neighborhing communities.
However, the Village does sponsor the following premier events:
- A Day in Our Village
- Farmers' Market
- Fourth of July Parade
- Halloween Trick or Treating
- Sculpture Walk
Any organizations interested in holding a special event that involves public property such as a run, walk or sidewalk sale, must apply for a special event permit. Click here for more information on the process.
