What we're about

West Loop Families is a community organization that offers support to member families. We provide children with opportunities for social interaction and play through playdates, story times, gatherings at parks, zoos, museums, indoor playgrounds, restaurants, holiday events - and more! Our gatherings are all around the city, though our home playdates tend to stay in the West Loop/West Town and surrounding neighborhoods.

We keep parents busy, too. Through our group, parents will meet other families in our community. Ours is a community for socializing through family dinners, product samplings, a book club, social outings, special events, moms' nights out, educational workshops and more!

West Loop Families is for families looking to do things with kiddos in the area. . If you're a stay-at-home or working parent or caregiver in the general area and are looking for things to do with the kiddos, join our group! We're a friendly bunch. Membership is free!

West Loop Families welcomes all Chicago families to join, especially those in our neighboring communities:

West Loop + West Town + Ukraine Village + Bucktown + Near North + Little Italy + University Village + Fulton River + River North + Loop + South Loop + Pilsen

We love our community and strive to keep all who live or work in the West Loop and surrounding areas informed, active and supported. No politics involved. we are just helping build our community. Be part of our wonderful community and join us today!
