It's hard to believe March has arrived, bringing with it signs of spring all around New York City, from melting snowbanks to outdoor play. One thing that doesn't change with the season is our overflowing events calendar, but we're making it easy for you to hit all the fun, spring-inspired events, including the Macy's Flower Show, Purim fests, and of course St. Patrick's Day parades and children's activities as the city turns green March 17.
We've rounded up 14 must-hit happenings in our GoList. Beyond the holidays, it's a huge month for the performing arts. We've got details on the innovative Tilt Festival, plus a pair of huge, new, kid-friendly Broadway debuts with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Anastasia. Brooklyn's BAM is staging a fun-for-the-whole family Peter Pan-inspired show and tween favorite The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is debuting a brand-new Off-Broadway production. Looking for a little-kid friendly theater experience? You're in luck as Paw Patrol Live makes a stop here, too.
We're also highlighting a music fest in Brooklyn, a monthlong pop-up art studio for kids in Queens, a FREE STEAM festival in Chelsea, and mummies arriving at the American Museum of Natural History.
Now get your calendars ready! Here are the top things to do with kids in New York City this March.
