Celebrate Naperville

September 25, 2022 | 1-4PM

Celebrate Naperville showcases the City's vibrant residents in conjunction with a look at how food and harvest shape our cultures and communities. Listen to performers from The People Tree tell stories around a multicultural theme that celebrates Naperville’s residential diversity. There will be a blend of stories shared about food, culture, and farming. Watch a cricket match and demonstration with the CM Center of Excellence (CMCE) on our Village Green, visit our historic buildings, take a tour of Pine Craig Mansion, enjoy history demonstrations, and more during this family-fun event.  We will also launch our new photography exhibit by local students, "How I See What I See." 

From 1-3PM, make sure to visit the Daniels House for the Weed Ladies Fall Sale featuring creative seasonal floral arrangements. Each one-of-a-kind floral creation has been designed by the Weed Ladies of the Naperville Heritage Society volunteer group.

If you're in for a challenge, we encourage you to participate in our escape room located in our Century Memorial Chapel! To participate, please sign up with the guest services team in the Visitor Center lobby. There are 6 slots available for each session at 1:15-2PM, 2:15-3PM, and 3:15-4PM. First come, first serve.  

Guests are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy. Alcohol and glass bottles/containers are prohibited. No food or beverages will be for sale.
