Children’s International has organized and hosted a FREE annual International Children's Day Festival since 2013 and to present.
The event is sustained by donations from the persons and corporations in the Chicagoland community and volunteers. With this community involvement, Children’s International has been able to provide with a fun filled day from 11am-6pm around June 1st of every year.
There is NO entrance fee, NO fees for any of the activities, NO fees for the food or beverages that we provide to the children, NO fee for the t-shirts and no other hidden fees.
Children’s International offers a variety of athletic actions: Mini World Cup Tournament, zumba lessons, ultimate marshal arts demonstration, miniature golf, sack race and hula hoops. Given the importance of animals in children’s lives, we have had a petting zoo, pony rides and an exotic animal show. To expose children to different cultures, Children’s International has international tables where various countries display their ethnicity and folklore and provide language classes where children learn basic terms in different languages in a fun way. At an artistic level, Children’s International has painting lessons, photography lessons, sculpting and a variety of art projects. We also have a Police Safety Show and Tell, the Fire Department ‘Check Out This Fire Truck’ and Mad Science Show, which is a scientific demonstration of fun and safe experiments. Musically, Children’s International has guitar lessors, dance and musical performances by children, a DJ playing music throughout the entire festival and a disco for children at the end of the event.
