The 41st Annual Day in Our Village if Sunday June 1 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Each year on the first Sunday in June the Village of Oak Park sponsors A Day In Our Village, a community festival considered on of the premiere 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 our 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.  In addition, the Park District of Oak Park sponsors activities in Rehm Park, 515 Garfield (at East Avenue), including swimming and games.

The Chamber of Commerce has a booth and invites members to volunteer.  Members spend an hour or so at the Chamber booth answering questions, promoting the Chamber and talking up their own business as well.  To volunteer at the Chamber booth, click here.

The Chamber also sponsors the DAVY awards, to recognize some of the most notable booths at the fair.
