Top Quad Cities Family Fun Events in March


Even with February having an extra day this year, it’s still quickly coming to an end, isn’t it? March will be bringing (hopefully) warmer temperatures along with later sunsets–I’m so looking forward to that! I don’t know about you, but cabin fever has me wanting to get myself and the kids out of the house to just do something. Luckily, the Quad Cities has lots of family events in March!

The thought of warmer temperatures makes me think of things that will be starting to grow and wildlife that will start to make their appearances once again. If you feel the same, there are plenty of nature-themed events this month, some indoors and some outside.  But, if something more high energy is your thing, there’s even a live kiddie show at the Adler Theater or a Mother/Son dance. 

We’ve rounded up some great family-friendly events for the month of March, so find something that sounds fun and go make some memories!  (And don’t forget to “spring forward” on March 8th!)

Be sure to check out your local library branch–they are adding more family fun events all the time! And make sure you are saving the date for the QC Mom’s Blog event on April 30–BLOOM 2020!  Geared toward new and soon to be moms, this is a moms night out you wont want to miss!
