French Connection Day

A favorite annual festival that celebrates Cantigny Park’s connection to France.

Enjoy a day-long festival of music, food, art and family fun as Cantigny celebrates everything France all to commemorate the personal history of the park's benefactor, Robert R. McCormick. (Cantigny is named after the small village north of Paris where Colonel McCormick fought in the Battle of Cantigny in 1918.) Enjoy music by Traveler's Dream and take a photo with the park's Eiffel Tower replica!
