The best things to do in New York with kids
Upcoming NYC events and festivals for kids
Time Out Market: Puppet shows
Start your Sunday mornings at Time Out Market New York! Not only will you have a chance to indulge in delicious brunch dishes (hello Clinton St. Baking Co.) but you can keep little ones preoccupied while you munch. Join the Puppetsburg crew on our fifth floor stage as the marionette entertainment kickstarts the day on a high note. With a new theme each week—such as "Farm to Table with Old McDonald," "The BEYONCE Show" and "Clementine Goes to Burning Man!"—we have a feeling you'll be as equally entertained as the kiddos. Bonus? Your youngsters will receive complimentary juice! Ages 6 and under.
New York International Children's Film Festival
This annual tradition is like Sundance for the younger set:On weekends in February and March, little New Yorkers watch the best new animation, live-action, documentary and experimental films from France, Japan and other far-flung countries. Festivalgoers (and their parents) can also take part in workshops, filmmaker Q&As and, of course, vote for the winning flick. Please check the website for a complete lineup. Ages 3–18.
It's Hug Time with Poppy and co...or is it?! In their first-ever live tour, the cheerful and colorful Trolls are tasked with an important mission: They must save Hug Time before it's too late. Naturally, the best way to do so is to bust out the dance moves, glitter and LOL moments. If your littles had a ball exploring the interactive DreamWorks Trolls The Experience, then they'll certainly love seeing their favorite characters on stage. Don't miss this exciting adventure, and of course, excellent hairdos. All ages.
