Submit An Event

Thanks for your interest in submitting your event. Our program team handpicks the events that appear on our calendar. We receive many submissions each week. Please send us your submission at least two weeks in advance of your event whenever possible. We will notify you if your event is published.

Is your event right for NPN? If you answer “yes” to these three questions you can submit your event for review.

  • Is your event in the city of Chicago?
  • Is your event designed for families?
  • Is your event unique and something that you don't typically offer?

Free family events and play dates are given more favor by our team. We do not post events that focus solely on selling a product or service. We do not post open houses on our calendar.* Incomplete submissions will not be considered. 

NPN is an inclusive organization and all events must be inclusive of families from all cultures and backgrounds, for example but not limited to the LGBTQ community and children and parents with developmental differences.
