Best Things to Do in Atlanta in March with Kids: Science Festival, St. Patrick's Day, Easter Egg Hunts

After what seems like a long winter, we've just about made it to spring in Atlanta. 

The sunshine, warmer weather, and longer days are conducive to getting out and enjoying the host of in-person and virtual events this month, which include the Atlanta Science Festival; the kitschy toy convention Toylanta, which might reawaken some nostalgia for the toys of our era, (Barbies, Cabbage Patch Dolls, and GI Joes, anyone?); the reopening weekend of Six Flags Over Georgia; and some photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny at Avalon.

So trade your winter boots for some comfy sneakers with some kick and head out (safely) with your crew to enjoy a long list of activities.

Prefer to stay indoors? Poppins@Home is a perfect place to find online fun for kids. Top picks this month include a Wonderful World of Wizards series, inspired by Harry Potter, along with Alina Celeste Music and Science through the Alphabet.

While we try to promote safe activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, keep your family and others safe by wearing a mask and maintaining an appropriate distance. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our event calendar to find something else to do.
