The KidFest mission is to provide activities that inspire healthy habits, introduce nature opportunities and encourage families to work together to help make a difference in the world. Our goal is to motivate families to volunteer in their community, work together to maintain an healthy lifestyle, get out and explore nature and of course, get together and Fly A Kite!

KidFest is a FREE, fun, family event that gets the entire family outside and moving.  

This is a FREE event located at Citizens Park. When you and your family arrive at the park, check in at one of three registration tents to get your all access wristband in order to participate in the activities. Then, pick up a free kite (for ages 2-10) and fly it in the big open field! At your leisure, experience each of the activity stations. Build a birdhouse, race your parents, do an obstacle course or explore the creatures that live in the pond. Food and drinks available for purchase from Catered Productions! We have something for everyone to enjoy and it’s ALL FREE!  This event is very popular and parking is limited, please take advantage of our FREE shuttle service located down the road at The Barrington Park District’s Langendorf Park (235 Lions Drive, next to the pool). FREE kites will be provided to all children ages 2-10. One kite per child.

In the event of inclement weather, this event will be canceled. Call our weather hotline at (847) 268-2268 for event status.
