Park Ave. in Elmhurst, from 12 noon-2:00 p.m. The cost to participate is $2 for members of the Elmhurst Heritage Foundation and $4 for non-members. No reservations are required.

In addition, families are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the Museum grounds. Summer Fun and Games picnicsA limited number of picnic tables are available or BYO blanket. Complimentary juice boxes and a sweet treat will be provided (while supplies last).
