"A Day in Our Village" is an event organized to provide an opportunity to all residents to celebrate the vitality and the rich advantages of our diverse community, together for one spirited day, and to provide the opportunity to residents' families and friends to come and share this Oak Park experience.

The organizing is done by the Festival Committee, a group of volunteers from Oak Park, and the several liasons, with the generous help of the many participating organizations and businesses who contribute their financial support, time, talent, and enthusiastic energy!

Souvenir promotional items are available at Scoville Park. The proceeds from the sale of these items are a source of support for DAY production costs.

All main sites are accessible to the disabled and have free "disabled only" parking available. For more information, call 358-5409 (TTY/TDD 383-0048).
