Naperville Last Fling is a four- day event of huge proportions that began as a small carnival 55 years ago, and is now the second largest event throughout Chicago’s entire collar county area, attracting huge crowds over Labor Day Weekend, and delivering more than $1M back to the community over the past decade.

It’s also an event that makes the end of summer go down a whole lot easier for it’s throngs of attendees. In fact, this event manages to pack an entire summer’s worth of fun into four days– big, big fun for every family member from toddlers to grandparents.  No matter what your age or what your particular brand of fun, you will more than likely find it at the Fling.

As of the year 2020, Naperville Last Fling is the only home grown event in Naperville.
