Creating, Organizing & Planning of the Ridgefest Committee

The committee is composed of representatives of the various Chicago Ridge taxing bodies as well as residents, all of whom put in many hours of volunteer time between January and the traditional last weekend of July each year.

Ridgefest Committee workers are charged with planning and organizing the annual RidgeFest Celebration. This event, which started in 1989 on the 75th anniversary of the village's incorporation, provides opportunities for the many non-for-profit organizations within the community to raise funds for their operations throughout the year.
