The Village of Westmont offers several engaging, family-friendly special events year round. In addition to the annual summer Cruisin’ Nights & Street Fair, which was recently named "the best weekly summer car show in the Chicagoland area" by Dane Neal, WGN Radio, the Village presents the Taste of Westmont, Holly Days and, in 2017, branded several fall events into Wicked West Fest. The Village also hosts the annual Memorial Day parade and Independence Day Celebration as well as supporting the Red, White & BBQ and Pet Promenade events.
New in 2018, Cruisin’ Nights will feature Steppin’ at the Street Fair, a friendly step counting competition, and a monthly Artisans Night featuring local artists co-hosted with The Artist Block Gallery.
The Village of Westmont encourages all residents and business owners to get involved in the community. A list of local volunteer opportunities is maintained on the Village website. In addition, at least quarterly, information is published about additional or timely volunteer opportunities through press releases, newsletters, and social media.
