Día del Niño Health Walk & Family Festival


In compliance with Governor Pritzker’s stay-at-home order, the Día del Niño Health and Wellness Family Festival, which was schedule to take place on Saturday, May 16th has been cancelled. We are saddened that we cannot welcome our community’s children and families to the museum as we have for the past 24 years.

However, we are excited to share that we are planning a new vision for the festival this year. Please check back here or sign up for our weekly e-newsletter for updates regarding this event.

The annual Día del Niño Festival is an event for the whole family and is dedicated to our children and keeping them happy and healthy. Typically, this event is hosted at the National Museum of Mexican Art and in Harrison Park; the daylong festival attracts over 2,000 children and their parents and has featured games, hands-on art activities, health education and live performances. The festival has its roots in an annual celebration that was created in Mexico in 1925 as a day to honor children.  In Mexico, Día del Niño is celebrated on April 30th when children spend the day playing games, having fun, and eating their favorite foods.
