Village Memorial Day and Fourth of July Celebrations


The Village of Winnetka and Winnetka Park District are pleased to announce this year’s planned Memorial Day and Fourth of July celebrations:

Memorial Day
A ceremony will be held Memorial Day from 10-11 AM on Village Green to remember and honor those who gave their lives serving our country. Unlike previous years, there will not be a parade before the ceremony. Registration for the ceremony will be required to limit the number of attendees and maintain social distancing. Register on the Park District's website.

Fourth of July
For the Fourth of July, the following activities are planned:

  • Activities on the Skokie Playfield
  • Activities in Village Parks
  • A 5k Freedom Run
  • Pop-up ice cream events at Winnetka beaches

The Village and Park District will communicate further details about these activities as we get closer to the holiday. Unlike previous years, a parade will not take place and, like many communities surrounding us, fireworks are postponed until September.

For all events, we are maintaining compliance with the Governor’s Restore Illinois Plan and the Cook County Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 guidelines

We are excited for the opportunity to gather as a community for these special holidays, and look forward to seeing you and your family!
