Maywood Fest is coming back this summer after a several year hiatus. Village officials announced that the fest will be held from Sept. 16 to Sept. 18 at Veterans Park, located between 1st and 5th Avenues along Fred Hampton Way (Oak St.), during the following times:
- Friday | 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- Saturday | 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
- Sunday | 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The village has printed marketing materials for the fest and earlier this year a planning committee was formed to organize the three-day event. During budget talks several months ago, at the insistence of Trustee Antoinette Dorris, the village board allocated at least $20,000 for the fest.
In an interview last week, Dorris, who also heads the fest’s planning committee, said that the fest’s details, including a list of performers and activities, are still being finalized and will be released in the coming days. VFP
