Northwest Fourth-Fest

The Northwest Fourth-Fest takes place during the Independence Day holiday. During the Fest, there is entertainment, a carnival, a parade, fireworks, food and more! In 2014, the Village of Hoffman Estates partnered with Hanover Township and the Hoffman Estates Park District. Thanks to their involvement, we had one of the best fireworks displays in the region. For complete festival details, visit
