A Day in Our Village

See you at the 50th A Day in Our Village festival
on June 2, 2024! 

The 50th A Day in Our Village festival is set for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Scoville Park at Lake Street and Oak Park Avenue. 

The premier community event serves as an annual celebration of Oak Park’s diversity and community involvement, and organizers are busy planning a memorable day worthy of this year’s half-century milestone.

Live music, food and extensive activities for kids — including the return of fun with foam — are a few of the highlights in store.

At its core, A Day in Our Village has always provided an opportunity to showcase the variety of ways to get involved in community life. In keeping with that tradition, more than 100 activity booths representing Oak Park civic, cultural, social service, educational and religious organizations will fill the park.

Families will find other activities for kids throughout the park, including the return of a bubble foam machine managed by the Park District of Oak Park in a nod to A Day in Our Village tradition from previous decades. 

Park District officials suggest that families consider bringing towels or a change of clothes if their children plan to play in the foam.
