The Kid's Fest is a wonderful live and fast paced outdoor extravaganza. It is a very large outdoor expo where families learn about boating, camping and fishing. There are dozens of vendor booths, learning stations, and activities such as canoeing, archery, fishing and much more.
Registered children go through a series of conservation and fishing, learning stations, qualifying for prizes and awards as they learn new and exciting things about nature.
It is a great event for families to get outdoors and learn about the natural wonders waiting to be explored at your local Forest Preserve in Cook County.
The Event is no cost to families but you must Register!
This event is brought to you by Fishin' Buddies! and The Forest Preserve District Cook County. For questions contact John Kidd @ 773-980-9350.
