Submit an Event

Everyone is welcome to add events to the Kidlist calendar, given that they are family-friendly events (no ongoing classes or camps), free/minimal fee, and are local for families in the west and northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Simply fill out the form below and click Submit and we will review your event submission.

Please note that although events that require registration are usually included in our lists and articles, they will not be included in the calendar or weekend planner. We only include events on the calendar that are free and/or drop-in.

If your event does not meet the criteria to be included on the calendar and you would like to get the word out to local families, be sure to mark that you are interested in advertising and Jennifer will reach out.

Please note that free events designed to generate business leads or serve as free advertising do not receive complimentary calendar listings.
