Come see why The Food Network's Rachael Ray thinks Retro on Roscoe is so fabulous. The Roscoe Village Neighbors is the beneficiary of Retro on Roscoe. This non-profit organization promotes the Village of Roscoe as a friendly place for Chicagoans to live and for local businesses to flourish. It provides an open forum for discussions on how to improve the community and seeks to continually improve safety for the people who live and work in Roscoe Village. Proceeds from Retro on Roscoe benefit Roscoe Village Neighbors. This year, RVN is using Retro income to fund improvements to the business district, donate to the Hamlin Park Baseball field upgrade, support our local schools, Audubon and Jahn, by funding teaching resources and reading materials, and hosting a variety of community events for our membership and members of the community. Sat & Sun: 12N-10p A $5(??) donation is requested at the door, and children under 12 and senior citizens are free. One of Chicago's hottest areas is the home of this flashback weekend of fun. Retro on Roscoe, now in its 12th season, will feature an antique car and motorcycle show, and plenty of '70s, '80s and '90s music to entertain the crowd of over 35,000 people.
Antique and craft vendors, ethnic foods and games, fill the venue and liven up this tree-lined street for an enjoyable, two-day festival that brings back great memories while providing an exciting venue for the entire family. The Family Area is one of the best in the City and offers games, crafts, entertainment and lots more.

! Fri 6-10p, Sat 11a-10p and Sun 12N-8p Oakton St will be closed from Fri 10a till Sun 12M, Skokie’s first downtown summer festival in more than 10 years.
The name “Backlot” pays tribute to downtown Skokie’s (then Niles Center’s) heritage as a silent picture western back lot set between 1907 and 1915. Chicago’s Essanay Studios, the MGM of its day, frequently used Skokie because its dirt roads, saloons and wood frame buildings resembled an old prairie town. Essanay used this area frequently for shooting movies featuring gunfights, bank robberies, and cowboy and Indian skirmishes. In 1915, the Niles Center Theater (now Skokie Theater) opened and residents were finally able to see the very westerns that they had watched being filmed here. Essanay was the home of stars such as “Bronco Billy” Anderson, Ben Turpin, Wallace Beery, Gloria Swanson — and in 1914 and 1915 — Charlie Chaplin.

Septemberfest is a unique event as it honors Bloomingdale’s past, present and future. The best demonstration of our commitment to the future is the Bloomingdale Scholarship Competition. Started in 1987 with a single award of $400.00 to a young Bloomingdale resident, the program has grown to six and eight scholarships per year. It is open to both young men and women between the ages of 16 and 20 who are residents of incorporated Bloomingdale. This is a way for you, as a business, to show that these young adults are important and deserve support. Donations to the Joe Draghi Scholarship Fund would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for considering this request. http://www.vil.bloomingdale.il.us/septemberfest
