Bensenville’s Music in the Park and LibertyFest Events Cancelled in Cooperation with State’s 5-Phase Plan

With the announcement of Governor Pritzker’s “Restore Illinois” plan  to reopen the state, the Village of Bensenville’s Music in the Park summer concert series and the Fourth of July LibertyFest celebrations have been cancelled. These events traditionally bring large crowds to Bensenville and would violate Governor Pritzker’s new“Restore Illinois”plan until the economy is fully reopened. The state is currently in phase 2 of this 5-phase plan.“This was not an easy decision and one that the Village struggled with knowing how popular they  are  but we  also have  to  follow the  direction  from  the state and  put  public safety  first. Bensenville remains committed to following all state guidelines, working together to combat COVID-19 and keeping our residents safe and healthy,” said Village Manager Evan Summers.Under Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois plan, gatherings of more than 50 individuals are prohibited until our region reaches Phase 5. Phase 5 requires the availability of a vaccine or highly effective treatment for COVID-19, as well as a sustained elimination of new cases. At this  point  it  is  reasonable  to  assume  that  accomplishing these tasks will  take  a  significant amount of time.To  learn  more  about  the  Governor’s  plan  to  reopen  Illinois,  please  visit: https://coronavirus.illinois.gov.
