Presidents Day weekend in NYC offers a crazy collision of holidays and family activities. There's a celebration of Losar, the Himalayan New Year, at the Rubin Museum. The Brooklyn Children's Museum launches a full week of special events celebrating Black History Month. Then there's Presidents Day, dominated by the New-York Historical Society, but that's not the only presidential show in town: the Mount Vernon Hotel and Garden throws a reenactor-rich Washington birthday bash on Sunday.
As if that's not enough, non-holiday events abound, with separate Elizabeth Mitchell and Antibalas concerts fighting for space with a sword dancing festival on Saturday. There's also a Culinary Kids Weekend celebration, and new children's theater: Love that Dog.
Of course, Monday officially ushers in the midwinter break for most kids, so we've culled together 35 Fun Things to Do in NYC this coming week, including Kids Week at the Intrepid and Engineering Week at NYSCI.
Don't forget our roundup of the best winter events for NYC preschoolers and tots or our guide to the best winter shows for NYC kids. As always, our Event Calendar and February GoList have even more ideas for family-friendly fun in the Big Apple.
