SUMMER EVENTS

Summer Concert Series

June through September

One of the highlights of the summer is North Township’s Summer Concert Series. Beginning in early June and continuing every Thursday through early September, North Township features some of the best bands around to perform at the Wicker Park Social Center Gazebo. The summer concerts attract crowds that hail from around the township and beyond. From vintage and contemporary rock to latin soul, the sounds of summer are always better at Wicker Park.

Grab the family, your tent and head to the park for an overnight camp out. Activities include a scavenger hunt, crafts and bonfire. Get ready to watch a family-friendly flick on the big screen under the stars. You bring your family’s favorite foods and drinks, bug spray and flashlights. We’ll do the rest.


Freedom 5K
