January events calendar for kids in NYC

Kick off the new year with our 2021 January events calendar! There are many in-person and virtual options to peruse!


We're all looking forward to a fresh start after the tumultuous 2020. Fortunately, our January events calendar for kids and families in NYC is the perfect way to start the new year. 

We have a slew of fun offerings: online classes for kids from your go-to family attractions (think the Museum of Natural History and the 92nd Street Y). Plus, you have a little bit of time to catch up on any Christmas events you might've missed. (It's always the perfect time for a light show!)

Whether you're looking for something virtually or in-person, we'll guide you toward the best—and safest—activities. We wish you and yours all good things for the new year ahead!
