Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

An Oak Park celebration five decades in the making is coming Sunday, June 2 when the 50th A Day in Our Village festival takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Scoville Park at Lake Street and Oak Park Avenue.
Village Manager Kevin J. Jackson announced that Jonathan Burch, a housing policy and planning expert - and an Oak Park resident - has been named Assistant Village Manager/Neighborhood Services Director.
The Oak Park Farmers’ Market opens its 49th season on Saturday, May 18. The Market is held every Saturday (rain or shine) from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. through October 26 in the Pilgrim Church parking lot, 460 Lake St.
Periodic cicadas will return to Oak Park this spring after the notoriously noisy insects have been living underground for the past 17 years. Village Forestry officials say cicadas rarely impact a tree's health unless it is small in size with few branches and a trunk less than 2 inches in diameter.
The Oak Park Fire Department has begun testing fire hydrants as part of a routine procedure that is expected to continue periodically all summer to ensure proper operations of these vital emergency response devices.
The Oak Park Film Festival, set for Sept. 12 and 14, is now accepting submissions through July 31 for the 2024 event. The entry deadline is Wed., July 31 with a discount offered for early bird entries submitted by Sun., June 30.
May is Building Safety Month, a time to raise awareness and understanding of what it takes to create safe and sustainable structures. To help mark the month, the Permits & Development Division is hosting an Open House from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, May 15 at Village Hall.
Due to today's forecast that calls for inclement weather, the Move with the Mayor events scheduled for May 14 have been postponed. Officials are actively working to reschedule Kuumba Kids, the bike rodeo, helmet giveaway and alternative options. More information will be shared soon.
Oak Park’s neighborhood climate coaching initiative is a partnership between the Village and the volunteer group Oak Park Climate Action Network (OPCAN) that offers a peer-expert advisory service to help residents navigate various pathways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The Village is celebrating International Compost Awareness Week (May 5-11) by highlighting the role composting can play in addressing climate change through reduction of greenhouse gas emissions at landfills and promotion of healthy plant growth.
Artists are being sought to create murals that will continue the transformation of the railroad retaining walls along the Green Line corridor from dull, blank concrete into canvases as part of the Oak Park Area Arts Council's Mini-Mural program.
The Village of Oak Park has long encouraged block parties as an inclusive and engaging way to strengthen community spirit, build camaraderie with neighbors and have fun. The request window for 2024 block events opens at 8 a.m. on Friday, March 1.
