Sponsoring a Lombard community Event

The Village of Lombard adopted a policy in 2018 to permit and regulate sponsorships from private businesses for community programs and events. 

Consistent with that policy, the Village of Lombard is now accepting sponsorship applications for the 2020 Cruise Nights and Summer Concerts Series. 

In June, Lombard’s Cruise Nights and Summer Concerts Series will kick off its 22nd season, with 10 live outdoor concerts taking place on Saturday evenings in downtown Lombard, in conjunction with a large display of unique and antique cars.

Throughout the season, the event will draw hundreds of attendees on a weekly basis. Private businesses seeking an opportunity to connect with the Lombard community and promote their business may submit an application for sponsorship to the Village.
