Frontier Days: From the Bi-Centennial to Today

Tuesday, April 25, 2017
07:00 PM - 08:30 PM

Frontier Days is an iconic summertime event attended by tens of thousands of people for the last 36 years. It’s an event that many children of Arlington Heights watch in anticipation as truckloads of carnival equipment are driven into their Rec Park neighborhood and watch as Recreation Park is transformed into Frontier Days.  But how did Frontier Days get its start? What was the beloved festival like in its early years? How do they book all the great entertainment? Come find out all those answers and more at the Arlington Heights Historical Museum on Tuesday, April 25 at 7 PM.

As the Arlington Heights Historical Society celebrates its 60th anniversary, the Society will be offering lectures throughout the year covering topics that highlight the Arlington Heights community. Learn about the history of the annual fest given by Board Members of Frontier Days: Ryan Danzinger, Pat Peery, and Bill Peery. 

This is a FREE event. Reservations are required as space is limited; call the museum to reserve your seat at 847-255-1225.
