French Connection Day

All ages
Free with $10 parking fee
Celebrate all things French at Cantigny Park, which was named after the Battle of Cantigny, where the park's benefactor Robert McCormick commanded an artillery unit. On French Connection Day, families can visit the park to enjoy French food and drink, make a French art project, hear stories from Madeleine from her book of the same name, enjoy French music and play a yard game called Petanque. A 23-food Eiffel Tower will be ready for families to take a selfie with!
