The Palatine Jaycees hosts the 64th annual Hometown Fest, Palatine’s Fourth of July celebration. The festival includes fireworks, entertainment, a parade, a carnival, food vendors, a business expo, Family Day, and much more. This year’s event will take place July 1 – July 5 at Palatine’s Community Park.

Tens of thousands of people attend the festival each year. In addition to Palatine residents, Hometown Fest attracts visitors from surrounding cities and towns. Become a Hometown Fest sponsor and show your customers that you are committed to supporting Palatine. Take advantage of this win-win opportunity to generate positive brand exposure while giving back to the community. Purchasing an ad in our program booklet is also a great way to display your hometown pride.

The Palatine Jaycees is a local civic organization for young people, ages 21 to 40, that provides leadership training and opportunities to its members through community involvement. Proceeds from Hometown Fest benefit Palatine by funding community events, grants, scholarships, and much more.
