Naperville’s Independence Day landscape just got a bit more patriotic, as family festival fun returns to Rotary Hill in early July – The 2nd Annual Naperville Salute.
The success, popularity, and contribution of 2021’s inaugural event, plus the dedication and fortitude of its Planning Committee members and partners, helped to ensure its return in 2022.
As in its inaugural year in 2021, the Naperville Salute festival, www.napervillesalute.org, will be a celebration of our families, our community, and our hometown values; centered around our military servicemembers and first responders, in a collective salute to them and to what they guard for us – our safety and our freedom.
In partnership with the City of Naperville, the Naperville Park District, and sponsors, The Naperville Salute will again take place at Rotary Hill, 443 Aurora Ave., blending family-friendly entertainment, dining, play, live music, and a fireworks extravaganza. This year, the Naperville Salute will encompass four days of entertainment, starting on Friday, July 1 and continuing through Monday, July 4.
Rising Country Music star Jon Langston joins the Salute in honoring our heroes on Saturday, July 2.
Hailed by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the “10 New Country And Americana Artists You Need To Know,” Langston is originally from Georgia but connects with audiences in every state. He has toured with Country great Luke Bryan, and his new single, “Back Words” is now playing on country radio.
Tickets are available via www.NapervilleSalute.org; the pre-sale code JL2022BDC will be valid through May 15 for a $5 discount.
Festival highlights will include live music, food and beverage vendors, special presentations for our military veterans, and a Family Fun Zone. The Naperville Salute team plus Directors of Naperville Responds For Veterans will also appear.
The Naperville Salute is run by a team of devoted and patriotic volunteers; thusly 100% of the proceeds of the 2022 Naperville Salute will go to assist local veterans in need through Naperville Responds For Veterans, a 501(c)3 organization.
