KidFest is a FREE, fun, family event that gets the entire family outside and moving.

Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club, Leave No Child Inside and the Barrington Park District come together to host this fabulous community event, along with over 20 other different organizations. This is a FREE event located at Citizen’s Park. When you and your family arrive at the park, check in at one of the registration tents to get your All Access Wristband to participate in all of the activities. Then, pick up a free kite (for ages 2-10), provided by the Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club, and fly it in the big open field. At your leisure, experience each of the activity stations. Climb a tree, build a birdhouse, race your parents, do an obstacle course or explore the creatures that live in the pond. Food and drinks available for purchase from Rotary Grill! We have something for everyone to enjoy and its ALL FREE! This event is very popular and parking is limited. FREE kites will be provided to all children ages 2-10. One kite per child.

The KidFest mission is to provide activities that inspire healthy habits, expose nature opportunities in the area and to encourage families to get up and explore the great outdoors. Our goal is to inspire families to go for a hike, a bicycle ride, play catch, fish, play frisbee and of course, Fly A Kite!

    "Enough as They Are: Helping Teens Move Beyond the Impossible Standards of Success"
    An evening with Rachel Simmons

    Rachel Simmons has been researching young woman for two decades and is the author of Enough As She Is and the New York Times bestsellers Odd Girl Out and The Curse of the Good Girl. Here Simmons will share the strategies to help girls and boys overcome brutal self-criticism, an acute fear of failure and feelings that they will never be smart enough, successful enough, attractive enough, thin enough, popular enough, or sexy enough. Join us and learn practical parenting advice—including teaching teens how to manage overthinking, resist the constant urge to compare themselves to peers, take healthy risks, navigate negative elements of social media, prioritize self-care, and seek support when needed to not just survive but thrive.

    Ready, Set, Thrive! Cultivating Emotional Resilience in Our Kids

    We’ve all heard some variation of the phrase “when life knocks you down, get back up,” but how do we foster this in our children? The ability to bounce back from stress, trauma, or adversity, not only encourages kids to be braver and more curious, but also helps them be more adaptable in a challenging and changing  world. Join Erika’s Lighthouse: A Beacon of Hope for Adolescent Depression and other parents of children aged K-8 as we explore and share ideas about how to cultivate emotional resilience in kids to help them thrive. At the end of the panel, parents will leave with a better understanding of how to:

    • Promote healthy risk taking and embrace mistakes
    • Resist the urge to “fix it” and instead ask questions that ignite independent problem solving
    • “Ride the wave” and learn to accept and manage difficult emotions
