Free Events in New Jersey Throughout January for Kids and Families

Happy 2019, everyone! A brand-new year brings a brand-new crop of free events for the family. Your post-holiday wallet will thank you.

January is the perfect time to keep the little ones busy and warm at free storytimes. Make the rounds at Tent Tales for Tykes, Storytime with Lolly, Storytime at Hoboken Fire Department, Story Time with Queen Elsa, and Barnes & Noble storytimes and activities. Catch admission-free performances of Big Jeff Music and Family Magic and Comedy Show

Festivals aren’t warm weather–only experiences. Bundle up and enjoy January festivals including the Fire & Ice Festival and Lambertville-New Hope Winter Festival.
