Dickens-East Dundee

In the tradition of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, each year during the first weekend of December (second weekend after Thanksgiving) downtown East and West Dundee come to life in a Victorian Christmas celebration with small town atmosphere.

The weekend kicks off with tree lighting ceremonies, hot cocoa, a visit from Santa and live portrayals of Christmas scenes in the merchant windows along Main Street. Saturday begins with the cornerstone event: the Spirit of Christmas Parade. Other popular events include Gingerbread House Making, Festival of Trees, Santa's Petting Zoo and, Christmas tree sales by the Dundee Lions Club in Grafelman Park.

National Night Out

The Village of West Dundee no longer hosts a National Night Out event. Take a look at our neighboring community of Carpentersville for an NNO event.

Earth Day, Every Day Community Gardening Project

Earth Day, Every Day
Becky Gillam

In celebration of a continuing commitment to the Earth Day movement's goal - to create change through small steps that add up to a large collective action - the Village of West Dundee sponsors volunteer community gardening days in April, June and August. Each event focuses on maintenance and beautification of a specific area of the public landscape.

This initiative would not be possible without many dedicated community volunteers. Individuals, families and groups are all welcome to participate. Business sponsors are also sought to help defray the costs of plant material and other supplies. Plant donations are also welcome throughout the year. Please think of us as you divide or remove healthy plants from your landscaping. Click here for a list of desired flowering plants and grasses. For more information, please contact us.

Concerts & Movies In the Park

Concerts In The Park
Dundee Township Park District

Each summer, the Dundee Township Park District puts on a series of live music concerts followed by a big screen movie in the Dundee area parks, providing free fun entertainment for residents of all ages.

Grafelman Park in West Dundee plays host to several such events during the month of July, with locations in East Dundee and Carpentersville during June and August (weather permitting). The Lions Club will be on hand with hot dogs, popcorn and more, with the proceeds used for service programs in our community. Bring your family and friends for dinner, fresh air, entertainment and community spirit!
