Hometown Picnic

June 12, 2022, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Naper Settlement’s Hometown Picnic features summertime traditions including games, contests and races, a vintage baseball game, and an apple pie baking competition. Visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and a picnic to enjoy the fast-paced action of bare-knuckle baseball, based on the original rules from 1858, when the Lemont Quarrymen take on the McLean County Prairie Chickens at 1:30PM.

Bakers are needed for the apple pie baking competition that features bakers from throughout the area. Past year’s entries have included double-crust pies, streusel-topped pies, and apple-fruit combinations. Entries for the baking competition are to be made at home prior to the event. To enter the contest, please contact Jackie Maronic at (630) 420-6015 or email her at maronicj@naperville.il.us.
