ABOUT GURNEE DAYS

Run by the Gurnee Park District, Gurnee Days is a family-oriented weekend of music and entertainment for all ages! Gather the family to enjoy three days of delicious food, carnival rides and games, amazing fireworks, a themed parade and much more!

For the safety and well-being of residents and visitors of Gurnee, the Annual Gurnee Days Festival (scheduled for August) hosted by the Village of Gurnee and Gurnee Park District have been canceled for 2020. These decisions were determined by Village of Gurnee and Gurnee Park District officials based on the advice of public health officials and the social distancing requirements of Phase 3 of Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois Plan. This was not an easy decision to make or one that was made lightly. Our community looks forward to and has many traditions surrounding these events. We are hopeful that we can offer these events next summer. Canceling Gurnee Days and other summer events is a decision that needed to be made now before costs were incurred with no clear time-frame for when the state might reach Phase 5 (which allows for large events and festivals).
