- What is Chicago Children’s Weekend?
The Chicago Children’s Weekend is a two-day expo dedicated to bringing to light all of the kid-related activities and businesses in the Chicago area. It’s the perfect opportunity for families to come out and learn, explore + play together!
- Who attends the Chicago Children’s Weekend?
Anyone who wants to experience a day focused on everything kids love! Bring your kids for the arts & crafts projects, hands-on activities, demonstrations and more. Plan your next family vacation, your child’s summer camp, and meet with local businesses that are specifically kid-oriented.

Admission price is $9 at the door (for adults). However, you may purchase advanced discount tickets and avoid waiting in line to pay.
- Does a ticket cover both days?
No; each ticket is only good for one day.
- I bought tickets online and now I can’t go. Will you refund my money?
Unfortunately, tickets are non-refundable. You can transfer them to another person, if you have a friend or family member who wants to go instead!
- Do I need to bring anything in order for my children to be able to play at the event?
YES! We recommend socks for all kids who are playing on the inflatables or in the toddler play area.
Also, all children playing on the inflatables must have a completed waiver on file. To save time at the expo, please download, print and bring this waiver with you!
- Is parking included with the ticket price?
Parking is not included. Parking at Arlington Park is $7 per vehicle.
- What if I still have questions?
Please email [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you at the Chicago Children’s Weekend!
