A Day in Our Village

A Day in Our Village Canceled for 2020; virtual event planned for June 28

With the goal of eliminating large gatherings as potential pathways for the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, all public events in the Village have been canceled through June, including A Day in Our Village. The event has been canceled only one other time. That was in 1975, when the still fledgling event faced a shortage of volunteers who handle the multitude of on-site tasks that make the gathering possible. Click here to read more...

Undeterred by the cancellation of A Day in Our Village due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers have planned a virtual celebration for June 28 to keep alive the spirit of diversity and community involvement that has made the festival Oak Park’s unofficial kickoff to summer.

Each year on the first Sunday in June the Village sponsors A Day in Our Village, a community festival considered one of the premier community events.

A Day in Our Village provides an opportunity for current and prospective residents to discover the diversity and variety of civic, cultural, social service, business, educational and religious organizations and groups in the Village.

More than 100 Oak Park entities set up activity and information booths in Scoville Park near Lake Street and Oak park Avenue, and local restaurants sell food nearby. The Park District of Oak Park also sponsors activities at one of its venues.
