4th of July Yard Decorating Contest

2021 4th of July

The Village is once again partnering with the Northfield Park District for a 4th of July Yard Decorating Contest!  Northfielders are encouraged to go all-out and show us their red, white, and blue- the bigger, the better!  

Take a walk around town or grab your bike with the family and check out the participating yards.   After you see them all, vote for your favorites by “liking” them on the Village’s Facebook page ( The eight homes with the most “likes” will receive a $50 gift card to a Northfield business of their choice.

Thursday, July 1 by 5:00 PM- Participating homes must complete and submit the entry form.

Friday, July 2 by 12:00 PM- Homes should be fully decorated to allow staff time to take photos of the homes and post them on Facebook.

Friday, July 2 by 5:00 PM- The Village and Park District will post a map of participating homes and post it on their websites and social media, and the contest begins!  Northfielders can vote for their favorites by “liking” them on the Village’s Facebook page.  Participants can “share” the Village’s posts to encourage more votes, but only “likes” of the Village’s post will be considered votes.

Tuesday, July 6 at 8:00 AM- Voting closes and winners will be announced!  

By entering the contest, entrants grant the Village of Northfield and the Northfield Park District a royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive license to display, distribute, post, reproduce, and take photos of decorated yards. The Village of Northfield and Northfield Park District will not be required to seek approval in connection with such uses.
