Oak Fest Celebration - Oak Forest, IL
Oak Fest Festival in Oak Forest
July 30, 2020
The Oak Fest Commission, NFP met as a group Tuesday night to consider options moving forward, given recent developments in the areas of public health, safety, economic conditions and the cost and difficulty of running an event solely from donations. After careful thought and consideration, it is with deep disappointment that we determined the most prudent course of action is dissolution of the organization.
Our respective paths all have crossed because each of us, from the Commissioners, group leaders, to the volunteers and patrons, have given time and energy to make Oak Fest a success.
We would like to thank the City of Oak Forest, our volunteer organizations, our vendors, our sponsors, the numerous Commission members who have served tirelessly over these 30+ years, and of course, the thousands of you who supported our cause year after year! We wish each and every one of you the very best.
On Behalf of Oak Fest, NFP,
Maggi Burkhardt, Tom Dagenais, Joe Koce and our Oak Fest Committee
