Northbrook Days Moves to Downtown Metra Lot

Northbrook Days Moves to Downtown Metra Lot

After considering several different sites, the Civic Foundation plans to hold its annual Northbrook Days festival August 4-8, at the METRA train station’s west commuter parking lot.  The location was chosen in consensus with Village staff and the Board of Trustees, as discussed at the May 25 Board meeting. The festival, which includes carnival rides, live music, food tents and more, funds local scholarships and grants to nonprofits. The event was moved from Village Green Park due to Park District concerns that the rides endangered the health of trees in the park.

In a social media statement, Civic expressed “a huge thank you to the Village Board, the Village Staff and the Northbrook Police & Fire Departments for working together with the volunteers of the Northbrook Civic Foundation to bring Northbrook Days back to downtown Northbrook. After months of hard work and a lot of coordination, the Civic volunteers are so excited to make this happen for the incredible Northbrook community!”

The Chamber plans to host a special Business After Hours on the festival’s opening night.  Watch for registration info in upcoming emails and be sure to join us for this beloved Northbrook tradition.
