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 – CANCELLED – With the health and safety of our residents and community partners in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our  Spring Family Festival. However, this 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.
  • Tuesday – August 18, 2020 – 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm (prior to the last Movie in the Park) – CANCELLED

    • Celebrate the end of summer – and the excitement of the start of a new school year!
  • Saturday, October 17, 2020 – 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – CANCELLED – With the health and safety of our residents and community partners in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Halloween Family Festival, but keep reading for some good news!

Businesses and Organizations
Participating as a community partner in our family events is a great opportunity to meet neighborhood families and showcase your business/organization.  There is no cost to you to participate.  We only ask that you provide a fun, safe, family-friendly activity and a prize/give-away/treat for the children in attendance.
