We’re Gonna Party Like it is 1818!

DuPage County Historical Museum

Who were the people who founded our State of Illinois 200 years ago? What did they dream about? What did they eat? How did they dress? And, most importantly how did they celebrate becoming the 21st state in the United States of America?

Enjoy an evening of partying like it’s 1818 with Ellie of Ellie Presents to celebrate Illinois becoming the 21st state! Sample the food, have your silhouette made, dance the dances, and hear the music that may have played as Illinois celebrated its birthday 200 years ago. 

This celebration is free and open to members of the public of all ages. Please register here.
