Get set for June traditions in Naperville’s corner of the world


Welcome! Celebrate safely.

Enjoy many summer attractions along the Naperville Riverwalk from Jefferson Ave. to Hillside Road. Find the Paddleboat Quarry with the Jaycees Marina at the base of Rotary Hill.

Longstanding events for June 2017 posted here are open to the public. These choices provide plenty of happenings, ways to experience local culture and community spirit in Naperville. Furthermore, the charitable events benefit a wide array of nonprofit organizations that help support the city’s quality of life.

Events featured here are repeats. First-time events have yet to become traditions. Inaugural events may be submitted to PN’s calendar via click here.  (Note, your submitted entry will go through an editing process. It will not appear immediately.) Thanks for sharing this “add event” service that also extends to other local media outlets.

For many years, a large number of residents have commented when they missed an opportunity, “If only I had known about that event…”

Here’s hoping PN’s overview focused on June will guide you to a few events on time!

Disclaimer! This list is by no means all-inclusive. Naperville is always introducing something new to do.

So many links… So little time… Cheers! Celebrate safely.
