This community-wide event began as a small celebration in 1888 with a handful of people. Today, it brings close to ten thousand friends, families and neighbors together to enjoy parades, races, food, music, and the North Shore’s best fireworks display.
As this event continues to grow every year, it has become Winnetka’s largest and most expensive celebration. As a result, the Park District has had to rely on support from members of the community to keep this long-standing tradition alive.
Be a part of the tradition by helping the Winnetka Parks Foundation raise $10,000 for the fireworks display!
