Madison Square Park Spring Kids Fest

Once again, we're joining forces with the Madison Square Park Conservancy and World Class Learning Academy to host an afternoon of free family fun in May—and we couldn't be more excited. This year's event, which takes place on Saturday, May 18 from 10:30am to 1:30pm at Madison Square Park, will be headlined by kid-friendly hip-hop artist Secret Agent 23 Skidoo (wow!) and feature appearances by Brooklyn kindie rockers Rolie Polie Guacamole, Apple Seeds’ Songs for Seeds and prehistoric creatures from the popular New Jersey attraction, Field Station: Dinosaurs. Arts-and-crafts sessions with MoMath, the Rubin Museum, Free Arts NYC and Taro’s Origami are also on tap, plus yoga classes with Karma Kids Yoga and a Hill Country Chicken’s pie-in-the-face station. Other activities include face painting, free snacks (look for treats from the Treat's Truck, Pop Chips and Clif Kid), a story session with the DiMenna Children's History Museum, giveaways from Disney's upcoming film Monsters University and photos at the Time Out Kids photo booth. The best part—everything is free! Scroll through our photos, above, from  last year's festivities and then mark your calendar for the big day in May.
