Maryland Holiday Events and Seasonal Activities for Kids and Families

Holiday Countdown

Find holiday fun every day between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day!


Between Nov. 25, 2016, and Jan. 1, 2017, we will post something fun to do as a family to help you enjoy the special times, traditions and joy of this magical winter season.

Whether a holiday performance, outdoor activity, seasonal craft, festive recipe or shining light display, check here each day for a new idea and way to celebrate the winter holidays in Maryland.

Winter

Find winter activities for kids and fun holiday events for families in Maryland and Washington, D.C., from December through February, including Christmas events, Santa sightings, New Year's celebrations, and special events and things to do for Kwanzaa, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Valentine's Day, Black History Month, other winter holidays and snow days.

Spring

Spring holiday activities, including St. Patrick's Day parades, Easter egg hunts, Earth Day activities, Mother's Day events and other fun things to do with kids in Maryland from March to mid-May, in Annapolis, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Bowie, the Eastern Shore and other Maryland cities.

Summer

Find summer events and fun things to do for Memorial Day, July Fourth and Labor Day, plus other seasonal summer activities for kids May to September in the Annapolis, Baltimore, Bowie, Maryland Eastern Shore and DC areas. Free and low-cost summer fun includes free or reduced-price movies, free summer concerts and much more.

Fall

Crisp, cool fall weather means it's time to visit a pumpkin patch or corn maze, go apple picking, enjoy Maryland fall fairs and festivals, and get spooked at a haunted house or other Halloween event. In November, sign up for a family Turkey Trot and give thanks with special Thanksgiving events.
