From Mother's Day to Memorial Day, we'll be finding fun things to do all month long—May the 4th be with you!

The Garden State is in full bloom this May, and our calendar is loaded with springtime fun. As warmer weather arrives, it's time to get outdoors and soak in the sun at food truck festivals, kite days, and the debut of outdoor movie season. Or, take in great indoor performances, like The Laurie Berkner Band Live and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood

The month brings with it longer days and time to linger at a favorite destination playground, spread a blanket out for a leisurely picnic, and, come Memorial Day weekend, hit the sand and the surf at our favorite Jersey Shore beaches.

We’re adding more events to our Family Activity Calendar every day, so don’t forget to check it frequently.
