Quick and Easy: Winnetka Children’s Fair

This summer tradition is back for its 66th year.


The Winnetka Children’s Fair will take place on Friday, June 8 and Saturday, June 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Fair has signaled the start of summer for North Shore students since 1946. This year features rides, games and activities for all ages, as well as delicious food and snacks. Get your face painted, win prizes at the game booths and take a turn on one of the amusement park rides. Admission to the fair grounds is free, and tickets for the rides and games are available for purchase.

The Board of Directors of the Winnetka Community Nursery School sponsors the Winnetka Children’s Fair. The Winnetka Community Nursery School has been serving families on the North Shore since 1944. More than 700 volunteers work to make this event a success every year. Click here to learn more about the Winnetka Children’s Fair and how to volunteer.
