A burgeoning village that maintains steady growth, Carpentersville continues to uphold its motto as “a flourishing community rooted in history and innovation.”
Founded along the Fox River during the industrial revolution, the village has evolved to meet modern-day demands while still supporting local commerce and business. This has provided the backbone of a successful community with appealing subdivisions and schools. Part of the “Golden Corridor,” Carpentersville is also located near several Fortune 500 company headquarters, numerous industrial parks, and medical facilities. Add to that a variety of parks and paths through area forest preserves, and Carpentersville achieves the perfect balance for those seeking the convenience of being located an hour from Chicago within a self-contained community with a bounty of natural resources.
Several area parks provide recreational opportunities while also serving as the perfect venue for a calendar full of annual events. Carpenter Park features playground equipment, a disc golf course, track with exercise stations, softball field, and multi-use trails with a connection to the Fox River Trail. Throughout the summer, residents and visitors enjoy Rock the Fox Music Festival, Burger Fest, and Concerts in the Park, all located at Carpenter Park. Other community events include a community yard sale, Fall Fest, a Civil War reenactment, and Light Up Carpentersville during the holidays. A draw for all ages, these celebrations and activities bring visitors and enhance the fabric of this distinctive village.
