40+ Free Events in February for New Jersey Kids

February is the month of love, and you’ll love all the FREE events happening in New Jersey! It's a month full of holiday celebrations, with a Valentine’s Day story at Barnes & Noble, a Lunar New Year celebration at Jersey Gardens, and library crafts in honor of Leap Day and President's Day.

A variety of more free fun awaits in February—little ones can attend a family-friendly concert, meet a favorite character, learn about a bird-chocolate connection, and bounce on inflatables.
