Kids Fest

Made Just for Kids

Wicker Park is one of the most family-friendly neighborhoods in Chicago. So it’s no surprise that the neighborhood event of the year, Wicker Park Fest, is also home to one of the summer’s top kids fests within a fest. Wicker Park Fest Kids offers a wide variety of children’s programming from noon to 6 pm both days. Proceeds from Kids Fest activities will benefit Jonathan Burr Elementary (specifically to improve the technology and programming) and is sponsored by the WPB SSA #33.
