Whether you're turning green for St. Patrick's Day or taking a deep dive into Women's History Month, March in NYC is a paradise for kids. Here are our favorite kid-friendly events and activities in New York City this month.

St. Patrick's Day parades are marching across all five boroughs, the Macy's Flower Show heralds the return of spring, and super shows for kids this month include Dog Man the Musical, Baobab, Junie B's Essential Survival Guide to School, and Zephyr!

Families can head to CMOM to celebrate female icons, sing along with The Pop Ups at the Jewish Museum, screen some real gems at the New York International Children's Film Festival, or go on a nighttime frog hunt.

It's your last week to take advantage of our Family Skate and Play Package at Industry City, too, because we can feel the warmth of spring's sun approaching. So, our Spring Fun Guide is blossoming with kid-friendly seasonal picks. Of course, we’re adding more events to our Family Activity Calendar every day, so don’t forget to check it frequently.
