Fishin-Buddies Kids Fest! 


July 8th Wampum Lake in Lansing IL, 10-4pm


We have worked day and night to bring this free event to everyone who wants to learn, play and enjoy the fresh air of the Forest Preserves of Cook County. Each year we help bring over 2,000 people to the Kids Fest! Enjoy activities such as Canoeing, Archery, Fishing and over 25 other environmental and local booths to teach and encourage exercise and fun outdoors. We will have prizes, games, face painting, rock climbing, petting animal area, and food vendors.

If you have intentions on canoeing you must print and bring the waiver below with you to the Kids Fest. Canoeing is first come first serve. Filling out the waiver does not guarantee participation in canoeing. Canoeing is EXTREMELY Popular. COME EARLY

Are you interested in bringing a group of 25 - 40 people? We have an option for a bus to pick your party up at a central location and drop them off at that same location. If you would like this option please fill out the form below and email it to Stephen DeFalco at the Forest Preserves.
