HISTORIC DOWNTOWN PLAINFIELD
Downtown Plainfield is a vibrant, pedestrian-focused destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. The dramatic streetscape enhancement and road reconstruction, completed in 2009, created raised intersections, mid-block pedestrian crossings, and wide sidewalks to establish a comfortable environment for pedestrians to shop and enjoy the backdrop of many of the beautifully restored historic buildings. The expanded sidewalks provide room for restaurants to offer al fresco outdoor dining. Decorative signage and extensive landscaping complement the historic architecture and contribute to Downtown Plainfield's distinctive sense of place.
As both the geographic center and the face of the Village, Downtown Plainfield is the heart of the community. A steady stream of events provides attractions to draw residents from the greater Plainfield area. Annual favorites and regular events include Plainfield Fest; summer concerts and movies in the award-winning Settlers' Park; weekly antique car shows during the summer; seasonal events such as Egg'straordinary, Halloween Spooktacular, and Candlelight Christmas; and individual business activities such as live music and wine tastings. Downtown Plainfield is also home to the Plainfield Public Library, which hosts countless events on a daily basis for all ages. With so much to offer, Downtown Plainfield is definitely "A Place To Return To."
