The City of Des Plaines sponsors a number of free events in 2020 that celebrate the spirit of this great community. So, save the dates and round up some friends to check out the annual Taste of Des Plaines event in June, our annual Independence Day Parade on July 4th, the City's 9-week summer entertainment series Friday Nights Live!, and our Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony in December. Whether you attend one, or all of these events, the City understands the value of offering venues where the community can get together to enjoy family, friends and neighbors.
