Millennium Park Family Fun Festival Returns

It's back! In my opinion, this is one of the city's best free family activities of the summer. Millennium Park's Family Fun Festival takes place daily from June 13 - August 21 between 10am and 3pm, with family performances and hands-on activities taking place in the Family Fun Tent. The daily entertainment includes:
  • 10am: Wiggleworms® entertainment, with the fantastic instructors from Old Town School of Folk Music leading kids in singalong and dance.
  • 11am: Reading circle
  • 1pm: Entertainment/Concerts
Throughout the day, the Family Fun tent's Activity Zone will include hands-on craft projects and garden, science and environmental activities led by some of the region's popular museums and cultural institutions, including Art Institute of Chicago, Chinese-American Museum of Chicago, Chicago Architecture Foundation, Chicago Children's Museum, Chicago History Museum, Chicago Park District, Chicago Wilderness, Lurie Garden, Museum of Science and Industry and Swedish American Museum.
