Frontier Days at Recreation Park, held around the 4th of July holiday since 1975, will again be interrupted with a postponement due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Last year, on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, the Board of Directors of Frontier Days, Inc. announced the postponement of Frontier Days 2020. For the second consecutive year, Frontier Days has been postponed until the next annual 4th of July holiday.




“It is again with great sadness that the Frontier Days Board of Directors has made the decision to postpone Festival 2021. This was a difficult decision, but the safety of our Red Shirts, the festival attendees and our vendors are our top priority.

It does not appear at this point that it would be safe to bring large groups of people together, given the current and possible future Covid restrictions. The board will continue in its efforts to bring the festival back in 2022.”

— Board of Directors of Frontier Days, Inc.

Frontier Days was first held in the 1975 as a way to celebrate the 200 year birthday of the United States. In 1975, a Bicentennial Commission was appointed by the Village of Arlington Heights to host a village-wide celebration.
