McCormick Day 2019

Cantigny Park
All activities will run from 12:00pm – 4:00pm unless noted otherwise
Family Friendly

An afternoon of family fun is planned as the park celebrates the birthday of Cantigny benefactor Colonel Robert R. McCormick (1880-1955). In honor of Colonel McCormick’s military service, guests will enjoy military themed crafts, programs and activities. We’ll have a cake cutting, too, so bring along your sweet tooth! The entire day is free, including parking—Cantigny’s annual “thank you” to the community.
