We invite you to check out our events calendar, with many family-friendly events and things to do on the weekends and every day of the week.

Tour the Family Farm Museum to learn about seasonal tools used on farms from the 1700’s to the 1900’s. 

Take a wagon ride through our scenic 300 acres and help support the Friends of Springton Manor Farm. This non-profit group is dedicated to recreation, education, conservation, and preservation of the Farm and will share information about volunteering at the park. 

The 18th Annual West Chester Film Festival will be held from Friday, April 26, to Sunday, April 28, 2024. Our festival presents short films of 30 minutes or less from around the world. During the weekend, we will show over 50 films, from 2-minute comedies to 30-minute dramas and everything in between.

Mark your calendars for Brandywine Valley SPCA's Walk for Paws on April 27, 2024, at West Goshen Community Park from 10 am to 1 pm. This pawsome day of family fun kicks off with a 5K color run, a 1K walk led by Fox29's Sue Serio, and yoga with puppies!

This is a sensory-friendly event for community families with children with special needs. Games and activities include a petting zoo, face painting, inflatable outdoor activities, arts and crafts, a plant sale, bingo, and raffles.

Held on our school grounds, Fairville's Fun Fair is especially great for families with toddlers, preschoolers, and young children. Enjoy pony rides, moon bounces, and cookie decorating. Dig for treasures in a giant sandpit, engage in age-appropriate arts and crafts, and even climb aboard a tractor! The Fun Fair also offers live entertainment. Delicious, healthy lunch fare will be available for purchase. 

Celebrate spring at our Butterfly Festival. This family-friendly event will include butterfly education, cotton candy, face painting, planting your own mini butterfly garden, listening to music, shopping, and having fun for the entire family.

Elmo’s Springtacular at Sesame Place is filled with furry fun and exciting events! Join in on the fun with an exciting lineup of meet-and-greets, music, magic, pirate adventures, and fireworks.

Thomas Dambo’s TROLLS: Save the Humans, with Imagine Exhibitions, is opening at Philadelphia Zoo in February 2024! These six enormous Trolls are on a mission to inspire humans to take better care of Nature. Each has a unique story and is created using repurposed wood by the world's leading recycling artist. The Trolls believe rethinking how we live our daily lives will help save the planet for all animals, including humans, and they want to share their ideas with you.

The season of fresh beginnings is here. From the progression of early spring bulbs ushering in the season, to vibrant blooms of our beloved tulips, to the welcoming fragrance of our flowering trees beckoning you to explore more, spring is in the air—and all around you—in our Gardens this season.

Imagination Street a new play space that kids and parents can enjoy together. For kids (ages 0–9), it is a meaningful, hands-on play experience in nine, interactive, themed playhouses that form a “city” to explore. For parents, there’s a cafe-style lounge to gather, drink coffee, or get some work done. Because the space is an open concept, parents are in close proximity of their children the entire time. They offer open play sessions, private parties, events, and more.

Burn off some energy while having some fun while skating with the family.

Guests to the Philadelphia Museum of Art can pay what they wish for admission every Friday evening and the first Sunday of the month. Reservations are required.

Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park have adventures behind every corner. They are the ultimate indoor playground for your entire family. Take your kids’ birthday party to the next level or spend a day of fun with the family, and you’ll see why we’re more than just a trampoline park.
