Holiday Celebration in the Village of Brookfield...
Click here for the holiday celebration program of events and be sure to come see Santa in the Village of Brookfield.
Holiday Food Drive...
The winter holidays are quickly approaching and whatever holiday you celebrate during this season the messages is always the same – brotherhood, caring and sharing. Slow economic recovery continues to plague charitable organizations such as local food pantries. Not only are there more families in need, but donations to the food pantries have tapered off.
Beginning December 1st, we will be collecting non-perishable food items to benefit Saint Barbara’s food pantry which services all the needy in the area regardless of religious affiliation.

As we approach the holiday season and the Brookfield Holiday Walk on December 7, the Brookfield Chamber of Commerce and Village of Brookfield are excited to kick off the First Annual Holiday Scavenger Hunt. This is a great opportunity for families to visit some of our outstanding community businesses.
Beginning November 1 and running through December 1, kids have the opportunity to find holiday wreaths, which were made by the students at Alphabet Learning Center, for a chance to ride with Santa on his sleigh! For more information, please contact Tait Jorgensen with Farmers Insurance at 708-680-6785. "Hunt Sheets" can be downloaded by clicking here or at any of the participating businesses.
