Call for bands: The Naperville Salute is seeking bands with Veterans or active military


The Naperville Salute, a hometown-focused 4th of July celebration honoring first responders, military, and Veterans, is looking for two local bands with Veterans or active serving military to perform on our big stage at Rotary Hill on July 2 or 3 in downtown Naperville.

Those interested are requested to email information about the band with links or attached files containing video and/or audio samples to info@napervillesalute.com. Bands must have at least one Veteran or active serving member of the military to be eligible. Deadline for submission is Wednesday, June 9.

The Salute will blend community, local entertainment, food and family fun at Rotary Hill located near downtown Naperville along the Riverwalk July 2-3 and conclude with fireworks July 4 at Frontier Park in south Naperville.

The Naperville Salute is designed for the Naperville community and will honor our hometown heroes, first responders, military, and Veterans.

Proceeds from The Salute will benefit Naperville Responds for Veterans. For more info, visit www.napervillesalute.com.


This is more than just a Celebration. This is more than The Fourth of July. This is more than Fireworks. This is a Salute. A Salute to the community we’re proud to call home. A Salute to the heroes who stand for what matters most. A Salute to the values that bring us together… the flag that unites us… and the people that stand beside us. This is our Salute. This is The Naperville Salute.
