The CHaD HERO Festival

Food - Music - KidZone!

Open: 10 AM - 3 PM

The CHaD HERO is about coming together with other CHaD supporters to celebrate Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Offering a variety of food, music, vendors, fun, and our FREE Positive Tracks KidZone, the CHaD HERO festival is open to the public. Anyone and everyone may participate in any of the festival activities before, after and between cheering participants on.


Event participants are treated to delicious food including pasta, fresh bread, chocolate milk, burritos, fruit, cookies and much more. Spectators and the public may purchase food from a variety of vendors. Please note the food for spectators and participants will be in two separate and well-marked areas on Wheelock Street. YUM!!

Thank you to our generous partners who help fuel our participants!

Positive Tracks KidZone:

KidZone is a family friendly area where kids of all ages can have fun before, during and after the CHaD HERO. Kids and families can also enjoy fun activities like the rock climbing wall, bounce houses and face painting. Our partner, Positive Tracks, will be there to help get kids ages 23 & under motivated to get moving and give back. If you are looking for fun, this is the place to find it!
