About Northbrook Days
Every year, volunteers across our community come together for five days and put on an exciting festival for residents of Northbrook and surrounding towns. The fest includes rides, games, live music, food, beer & wine, and much more! It's been a summer tradition at the beautiful Village Green Park in downtown Northbrook for decades.
Did you know that all the net proceeds go back the community?
Northbrook Days is a 100 percent volunteer organization, part of the Northbrook Civic Foundation. The festival is the foundation's sole fundraising event of the year.
Where does the money go?
Each year, the Northbrook Civic Foundation funds need-based college scholarships for students from Northbrook and grants for organizations that serve our community. Since 1950, the festival has raised more than $3 million to be given back to our community.
In addition, the Northbrook Civic Foundation provides grants to many non-profit and social service agencies that serve Northbrook residents. Past recipients have included: Northbrook Park District, Northbrook Public Library, Youth Services of Glenview/Northbrook, Village of Northbrook, International Center on Deafness & the Arts, Northbrook Community Nursery School, Northbrook Historical Society, Northfield Township Food Pantry, North Suburban YMCA, Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts, Glenbrook North Grad Night, The Josselyn Center, Northbrook Community Garden, Northbrook Centennial Plaza, Northbrook Symphony, Special Gifts Theatre, NSSRA, Northbrook Baseball, Care Packages to Military Northbrook residents overseas, and much more.
