Glencoe’s Sesquicentennial 4th of July Celebration

More activities, events, and fireworks!

Monday, May 6, 2019

To make the 2019 4th of July festivities worthy of Glencoe’s 150th birthday celebration, the Glencoe Park District partnered with the Village of Glencoe to make this awesome annual event even bigger and better. In addition to your Fourth of July favorites like the Rotary Fun Run and Glencoe’s Got Talent, new this year, we are expanding the Paraderoute so that participants and on-lookers alike end at Lakefront Park. Once there, the Party in the Park will start right away, with beer and wine sales, live music, food trucks, bounce houses, a dunk tank, contests and more. The evening will round out with a performance by the Blooze Brothers followed by a special fireworks show!
