We love being a part of Plainfield—a great, active, and family-friendly community! School’s out for summer, and so we are looking forward to all the fun that offers for residents of Springbank. Read on for 5 great summer activities in Plainfield!
1. Plainfield Fest
Mid-July, Plainfield comes together to celebrate with one of the area’s premier summer festivals. We love the event so much that we are again the title sponsor! This year, because of major growth in popularity, the fest is moving to the Plainfield Riverfront Property, known as West Electric Park. This means an even larger carnival, more entertainment and music, and more! Plan to attend July 14-16!
2. Settlers’ Park Movie Series
The Village and Plainfield Park District show movies throughout the summer in Settlers’ Park on a big screen. Bring lawn chairs, blankets, and bug spray and purchase popcorn, snacks, and Kona Ice as you take in a recent favorite movie on a 20 foot inflatable screen. Check out the schedule.
3. Settlers’ Park Concert Series
Favorite local bands play live music at the Richard A Rock Amphitheater in Settlers’ Park one Thursday during each month of summer. Bring a lawn chair, blanket, and bug spray and soak in the music! Check out the schedule.
4. Farmers Market
Every Sunday from noon-4 pm, come browse the Farmers Market in the parking lot near the library. Purchase fresh flowers, fruits, vegetables, baked goods and handcrafted items, all from local vendors.
