Cantigny Park invites families to enjoy an unforgettable evening inspired by the small, yellow and mischievous characters from Universal Studios’ “Despicable Me” franchise and last summer’s “Minions” blockbuster.

Tickets are now on sale for Cantigny’s Minions Party on Saturday, February 27, from 6 to 8 pm. The event includes a screening of “Minions” in the Visitors Center Theater, fun crafts and creative Minion-themed treats. Bananas, too, of course! Minion characters will mingle with partygoers for photos, and guests can take pictures wearing their favorite Minion hat in a photo booth. A balloon artist will entertain as well.

Kids are encouraged to come in costume, and every child will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of four Minion prizes.

Party tickets are $20 per person; kids 2 and under are free. Tickets purchased after February 19, if available, are $25. Parking is free for ticketholders. Reservations (required) can be made at 630.260.8162 or online at

Cantigny Park is open Friday through Sunday in February, from 9 am to 4:30 pm. The park resumes seven-day operations beginning March 1.
