You probably know by now that the theme for this year’s Good Food Festival is “your choices matter.” But it’s not just about the choices you make for yourself — if you have a family, your choice to teach your children to appreciate Good Food matters even more. You could help raise the next generation of conscious consumers.

This year’s Good Food Festival isn’t just for adults making those Good Food decisions; it’s also for families — and especially kids. And because we’re so excited to welcome children to the Good Food Festival, we’re offering FREE admission to everyone 12 and under!


What We’re Offering

We’ll again be offering the Kids Corner, sponsored by Purple Asparagus, the organization working to educate children, families and the community by bringing delicious, nutritious hands-on adventures to schools, community organizations and farmers’ markets throughout the Chicago area.

Our friends from Fooditude will be setting up a mini-studio where kids can be stars of their own Good Food story — and the video clips will be posted to Fooditude’s website after the event.

And, of course, all of our exhibitors will be thrilled to see kids out on the floor, and many will be eager to offer demonstrations of their services or samples of their delicious Good Food. (We hear Kim Snyder from Faith’s Farm will have baby chicks for kids to hold and learn about in the Good Food Commons!)


Kids Get in Free!

Start ‘em young, they always say…and we agree! Teach your children that their choices matter too, by bringing them for a fun Saturday at the UIC Forum for the 2013 Good Food Festival. Don’t forget — all kids 12 and under get in free!

Get tickets for your whole family today on our Eventbrite page.
