NAPERVILLE, IL — The Naperville Salute was set to debut July 3 and 4 with live entertainment, family-friendly activities, a “Taste of Naperville” and fireworks, but has been postponed until 2021 due to the ongoing new coronavirus shutdown. Festival planners said in a news release that they are still hoping to have a fireworks display July 4, but that is tentative and will depend on any new direction from Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker.

Naperville Salute co-chair Warren Dixon III said in a statement, “After many conversations with public health officials, sponsors and community leaders, there are just too many unknowns, liability, and safety concerns to move forward with the inaugural Naperville Salute planned for July 3-4, 2020.”
