Free Things to Do With Kids on Long Island in March

If you’re looking for fun things to keep your family entertained and your wallet untouched this month, you can stop your search right here. We’ve rounded up a slew of FREE family-friendly activities across Long Island that will help get everyone through this (hopefully) last bit of winter.

In March, there are plenty of libraries and bookstores offering crafts and storytimes celebrating everything from creativity to St. Patrick’s Day. Other free events let kids participate in an epic Battle of the Bands, observe the stars in the sky, or try their hand at coding.

Long Island also celebrates its Irish heritage with a month's worth of St. Patrick's Day parades: Enjoy the pipes, drums, and marchers, free of charge from Rockville Centre to Montauk

For more fun activities that won’t cost you a penny, check out our lists of free indoor play spaces and restaurants where kids can eat free. And don’t forget to check out our events calendar and MarchGoList for more seasonal inspiration.
