Welcome to Morton Grove Days

Morton Grove Days Festival is a spectacular 3-day community event featuring carnival rides, games, kid’s activities, a beer garden, food court, fantastic live entertainment, and a business showcase.

Family-friendly July 4th activities start at 2:30 pm with a Parade on Dempster Street, featuring marching bands, floats, drum corps, and patriotic entries. The day ends at dark in Harrer Park, with the best fireworks show on the North Shore, presented by the Morton Grove Park District.

Thank you to all 2014 patrons for another successful year!

We look forward to another successful year in 2015.
