Summertime Park Forest is in full swing, so there are plenty of events for the entire family.  

The fun kicks off on Saturday, June 10, with the Juneteenth Celebration at the Village Green at 10 a.m. The Commission on Human Relations and Community Relations co-hosts the free event, including vendors, food, and music. Additionally, there will be live performances and horseback riding. 

The Juneteenth Celebration will start at 10 a.m. in DownTown Park Forest at 349 Main Street. 

Later that day, Community Relations is hosting a Pride Party with food, a fashion show, activities/games, and face painting. The party will start at 6 p.m. and go until 9 p.m. This event will also be held at the Village Green at 349 Main Street.

June is "Resident Appreciation Month," and the Village of Park Forest is hosting a Resident Appreciation BBQ at the Village Green at 6 p.m., on June 14. The BBQ will include music, vendors, and drinks. This outdoor event will take place at the Village Green and is the pre-party to the Village's Main Street Nights summer series, which will begin at 6:30 that evening.

Main Street Nights is a music series that will run for eight weeks through August.

The Village will continue celebrating Juneteenth by being a co-sponsor of the Juneteenth at the Nate event at Governors State University. That event is scheduled for Saturday, June 17, and starts at 4 p.m. For more information, click here.

The week of Juneteenth, June 19, the Park Forest Library is also hosting several events, including an adult giveaway on Tuesday, June 20, at 11 a.m., followed by a youth (June 21) and senior (June 22) giveaway on the following days at 11 a.m.

To end the month with a bang, the Village is hosting a House Music Fest on Saturday, June 24. The free event will house over 20 vendors and music from 12 different DJs all day and run through late evening.
