Dino Fest

June 10, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Included in general admission

Don’t miss the official party to celebrate the arrival of the Spinosaurus, the newest dinosaur at the Field!

Dino Fest is the official start of summer at the Field Museum, not only to welcome our newest dinosaur friend hailing all the way from the Cretaceous but also to celebrate SUE the T. rex, Máximo the Titanosaur, and all the other dinos that make the Field so special. The event will feature dinosaur trivia games, a poetry station, a book fair, and presentations from the Field’s dinosaur curator Jingmai O’Connor, PhD, and paleoartist Ted Rechlin as they share fun facts and explore who would win in a fight between Spinosaurus and T. rex.

And don’t forget to wear your best dino gear — costumes encouraged!
