The Village of Addison takes pride in being an affordable community to both visit and call home. Addison is also home to twenty percent of all DuPage County manufacturing operations, including Pampered Chef and major operating facilities for UPS and Nabisco. The village is just 12 miles from O'Hare International Airport, 20 miles west of Chicago's Loop, and convenient to major highways and mass transportation. 

A great pride for Addison is the Rock 'N Wheels summer series that has grown into a regional favorite and held on Thursday nights throughout June, July, and August on the Village Green.  Festivities include free entertainment, cruise nights, kids rides, and food vendors from Addison restaurants.
