Things to do in Minneapolis-St Paul this weekend!
March 23-24, 2019
Could we be any more thrilled to find ourselves collecting events for the first weekend of SPRING? For more inspiration on spending family time together this weekend, check our March Family Guide or our Family Fun Calendar.
SWEET FARM BABIES
Starts Friday, March 22: Come on out and meet the fuzzy new arrivals of Minnesota Zoo’s Farm Babies — lambs, chicks, piglets, goats and all the rest. In addition to getting hands-on with the babies, there are tons of other activities to enjoy out at the Wells Fargo Family Farm area of the zoo. If the weather cooperates, the outdoor nature playground will absorb the rest of your kids’ spring fever. March 22-April 30, included in Zoo admission.

MAPLE SYRUP PICKS

Tap a tree, collect sap, and watch it boil down. Sample the park’s natural sweetness with pancakes. Drop in anytime. 1pm-4pm, $6/pp.

Sun, March 24: Rock the Cradle | Minneapolis Institute of Art
The Current’s annual music & arts festival for the 8-and-under set, arrives on the scene March 24, 11am. Rock the Cradle can be a touch crazy, in our opinion, so keep that crowd level in mind before heading out. Also noteworthy, strollers are strongly discouraged. FREE admission.
Sun, March 24: Free Ink Day | Highpoint Center for Printmaking, Minneapolis
Free Ink Day is a program hosted three times annually at Highpoint Center for Printmaking. It’s the perfect way for an interested person of any age to dabble in printmaking without committing to a full class. Activities are open to all ages, but most kids 5 & under will need a significant amount of help with the printmaking tools. Hit the link for tips on bringing youngsters. 3/23/19, 1-4pm.
