Events

Wrightwood events are among the largest events in the city that are held all throughout the year, including monthly community meetings, festivals, and holiday events. We have now moved to a mix of in-person and virtual meetings.

WNA has one of the longest series of open community meetings in the city! Festivals include the winter’s Taste of Wrightwood, the Taste of Lincoln Avenue in the summer, and the Lincoln Park Wine Festival in the fall. Seasonal events for children include Santa visits and Easter Egg hunts.

Wrightwood Neighbors events raise money for our neighborhood schools, after school programs, charities, food banks and neighborhood improvements.
