COVID-19 Statement

Experts have advised that the best thing for our community during the current Coronavirus pandemic is to reduce crowded gatherings. As we move into Phase 4 we will be adding more events on our calendar that are happening in person. For the time being, we are waiving our “no pre-registration” rule. Due to reduced capacities at facilities, we feel this is the best way to help both parents and the sites. Please check with the hosting venue, and exercise caution when selecting outings. Ultimately it is your decision if you choose to continue to go to public events and spaces.

For the best and most up to date information on the outbreak locally please visit the McHenry County Health Department COVID-19 status page.


We do our best to provide the most relevant and timely information to our readers, but please confirm dates, times, and availability before attending an event.

Events are posted on Little McHenry County from information found on, but not limited to, attraction sites, government city sites; as well as submissions from individual attractions, press releases, and PR firms. All events are subject to change without notice and Little McHenry County cannot be held responsible.

Little McHenry County loves hearing about events!! Events must be low cost or free and for kids, families or parents. Events must not require pre-registration to attend, and must welcome walk-ins.  To submit your event for the calendar please click the green +Post Your Event button on the calendar below.

Questions about the calendar? Please contact Melissa.
