Elmhurst Morning Rotary's Annual Breadbasket Classic 5k Run
Elmhurst has an excellent school system - District 205. This attracts many families to Elmhurst, as good schools are their number one concern. Our award winning park district offers many programs for all ages from toddlers to senior citizens. We have two outdoor public pools; the Norman Smalley Pool was opened in 2000 with a zero level start plus a diving area and slide. Elmhurst has 14 religious denominations represented by 30 religious facilities. Elmhurst is home to two colleges - Elmhurst College and MacCormac College.
Our community hosts an Oktoberfest, which is a celebration of the heritage of our founders, as well as Elmfest in June with many food venders and a carnival. There is also entertainment in City Centre, "Cool Cars Night", plus movies and music in Wilder Park. Of course we can't forget the restored York Theatre with it's first run movies.
