Spring Festivals for Families on Long Island, 2019

Spring on Long Island means pleasant weather. And that begins a series of festivals to celebrate the arrival of this most colorful season.

So head outdoors to enjoy crafts, activities, science, and more family fun. Begin in late March and early April with Easter Bunny breakfasts and brunches. Later in the spring, enjoy nature festivals, Mother's Day activities, and the sweet beginning of strawberry season. At the end of May, be sure to join in the weekend-long celebration that marks the 200th birthday celebration of one of America's—and Long Island's—most beloved poets, Walt Whitman.

As always, check out our Spring Fun Guide and Long Island Events Calendar for more kid-friendly entertainment. And check back to this post regularly as more spring festivals are added.
