Kids Things To Do

Fall Kids Fest 2012!

Join us on October 13 from 11am-2pm for Mad. Sq. Park’s annual Fall Kids Fest in celebration of the Conservancy’s 10-year anniversary! Bring your young ones for a free fall-festive day especially dedicated to them and have the whole family enjoy live music, arts and crafts, face painting, pumpkin decorating, games, snacks, and much much more!


Parents, the Costume Swap is back! Head to the Costume Swap tent and bring outgrown and clean children’s costumes and swap them out for “new” garb. This is a really cost effective solution for our ever-growing children! If you have any questions please contact the Conservancy at

Make sure to check out a new addition and Kids Fest first, the Games section located on the east lawn! Children of all ages can enjoy board games presented by the New York Department of Parks and Recreation, throw a pie-in-the-face of our earnest sponsor Hill Country Chicken, and dash through an obstacle course, sponsored and designed by Deer Mountain Day Camp!

Don’t forget to venture to the Crafts tent located on the northern lawn. Make tube monsters with MSPC, egg shakers with The Little Orchestra Society, table top activities with Appleseeds and much more! Visit the Marimekko booth during Fall Kids Fest to make a colorful and fun Marimekko fabric pumpkin using their fun prints and patterns!

Neighboring the Crafts tent on the north western side of the park is the Pumpkin Patch! Check in with our pumpkin patch team to receive a ticket for a free pumpkin and then head over to our decorating station! Pumpkins will be given out to children who are present at the Fest and are on a first come first serve basis.

Check out our Kids Fest park map for layout details!

Fall Kids Fest is rain or shine and takes place in beautiful Madison Square Park at 23rd Street between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenues. This free event is presented by World Class Learning Academy, NY, an international school for children ages 2-11, and Time Out Kids.
