Bay Area kid events

So you may have noticed that ‘local family events‘ tab up there near my header. The long and short of it is that I have a super energetic 4 year old and I want him to experience as much as he can handle of the Bay Area and everything there is to explore around these here parts. Part of it is also that I know we won’t always live here and I don’t want to look back on our time here and wish we had done more.

Over the summer, I want to make sure that we do as much as we can handle of my two favourite things- hiking and going to festivals! There are lots of other kid friendly events out there though, and lots of sites telling you all about it. The Bay Area is so gorgeous and now the weather is glorious and warm, how can you want to be anywhere but outside?

Inevitably, I forget where I saw what info and I keep wishing there was just one calendar I could check. I think Red Tricycle does a good job of listing what’s happening out there, and I especially love their weekend listings. 510 families is another great site for finding stuff to do for the kiddos and yourself, right here in the East Bay.

I decided to create my own though with a smattering of stuff from everywhere. And that’s what that tab is. A calendar of family friendly events that I’ve seen somewhere and would love to attend. You might find something fun for you to do there too and hopefully we’ll see you there!

Here’s the ever growing list of sites I’m getting these events from. (There’s also a link to the event URL for every calendar entry).

And then there’s my growing list of stuff I’d like to do or places I’d like to go, with the kiddo of course. Hmm. Looks like I better just sit down and make a list of things i’d like us to do this summer. And yes, the Gilroy Garlic Festival is so going on that list. So is lying under a tree and watching the leaves rustle in the breeze. 😀
