Though we receive extensive personnel, public works and safety support from the Glenview Park District and the Village of Glenview, our direct event expenses exceed $70,000 and are paid entirely with donations made by our residents and businesses. Our ability to continue to provide this wonderful celebration depends on your support.
Be a business sponsor of the 2015 Glenview Fourth of July festivities and reap the rewards. As a business sponsor ($100 plus), your business name will have exposure to over 40,000 local residents and other business owners.

TWILIGHT SHOW CONCERT & FIREWORKS, Gallery Park, Patriot Blvd & Navy Blvd, Glenview, IL 60026
The 2015 Glenview 4th of July Twilight Fireworks will be held at Gallery Park. The traditional location at Glenview Park Golf Club is unavailable this year due to a major renovation of the course. The 140-acre Gallery Park (located behind Park Center) was selected for the 2015 show due to its location, size, access and parking.
As always, the program will begin with a patriotic concert by the 100-piece North Shore Concert band. Following the concert, a sparkling display of fireworks will light up the summer sky to a recorded musical score. Make your plans now to be part of Glenview’s 50th annual Independence Day Celebration!
