Welcome to Concord Family Network (CFN)! We're glad you have found us!
CFN is a volunteer-run group of local parents, based in Concord, Massachusetts, working together to unite, inform, and engage Concord families with young children (birth-8 years). CFN hopes to provide many opportunities for member families to meet, socialize, and have fun with our kids!

Hayride and Pumpkin Picking
A steady drizzle couldn't dampen our fun at Shelburne Farm! An intimate group of 7 families gathered at the Stow farm for a hayride to the pumpkin patch where the little ones chose their own pumpkins. The group then relaxed under a dry tent to enjoy fresh cider and donuts. Some families even braved the elements, and ventured to visit Shelburne's animal pens. What an awesome autumn activity!
In a room filled with ghosts, goblins, witches, and little monsters, it was a miracle that CFN members and their guests made it out of Scout house alive! On Saturday, Oct 19th, at the annual Halloween party, CFN members filled their bellies full of delicious treats, decorated pumpkins, and marched their little ones in the costume parade. It was a frightfully delightful time! We also collected non-perishable food items to donate to Open Table, a great organization here in Concord. HUGE thank you to all our volunteers for their hard work before, during, and after the event. We truly could not throw the party without you!
