Once upon a time, Joy owned a site called Free Family Fun. Eventually, she joined forces with Anne and Gianna, and while we no longer focus exclusively on Free activities for the Twin Cities, it is still an important part of our mission. We want to help families enjoy time together no matter what their budget. The big ticket items can be a lot of fun, but the free events are what make day-to-day life in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metro so great. The Twin Cities metro has a lot to offer families looking for free things to do. Start with our list of parks (they are always free and fun) and check this calendar frequently. We are adding new ideas every day. Definitely email us with your own ideas. We’re always looking for new, free events and activities to share.

For even free family fun ideas, we recommend:
