Downtown Special Events
Music in the Park/Cruise Nights- June through August
Everyone’s favorite free, family summer concert series, Music in the Park begins in June and has something to offer for all musical tastes.
Favorite Bensenville restaurants sell dinner and dessert items, so families can have ‘dinner in the park’ prior to the concert. Early in the evening, there are free carriage rides and an artist drawing caricatures for kids of all ages. Each concert night includes a Classic Car Show and a 50/50 split the pot raffle that benefits our local charities and civic organizations. We look forward to another fun and exciting year of Music in the Park.
Santa Claus is in attendance taking photos with our young visitors as they express their Christmas wishes. The holiday express train will take children of all ages around the Town Center. Carolers, ice skaters and holiday music will entertain us and FREE hot dogs, taffy apples, and hot chocolate will keep the chill away. Don’t miss our annual chili cook-off between Fire Departments around the region. All of the activities culminate with the ceremonial lighting of our town center tree.
