Family Events

Parents and Children
Our Family Events Committee organizes fun, safe, family-friendly events and activities for the children in our neighborhood.

With support from local businesses and organizations, children are invited to enjoy themed activities as well as games, crafts, art, dance, music, sports, face painting, balloon animals, prizes, give-aways, treats – and more.

All events are held in A. Montgomery Ward park (weather permitting) or an alternate indoor location. Attendance is free – and participation is open to the public.  Registration is not required.  We hope to see you there!
  • Saturday – May 30, 2020 – 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – Postponed – With the health and safety of our residents and sponsors in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our May 30th Spring Family Festival.Although the Spring Family Festival  has been cancelled, it should not deter neighborhood children and their families from exploring the wonders of Spring on their own. You can still plant a flower or herb garden at home – nurture it – and watch it grow!  Have fun – and share your photos with us at info@RNRAChicago.org. We’ll select some photos to be shared on our website, newsletter and social media.  Even though we can’t be together, we can still be a community and share our joy!

Stay tuned and watch for your photos to be posted!

As for f uture events, we’ll continue to monitor the impact of Covid-19 and plan accordingly to protect the health and safety of our residents and sponsors.
