Annual Events

Storybook Ball
Families (adults included!) are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite storybook characters as we celebrate the power of reading. Event goers mingle with beloved storybook characters, hear classic stories read, dance to jamming music, eat delicious food and more! Get your tickets to the 2016 event here.

Kindergarten Mixer
This late-summer tradition invites first-time kindergartners to meet a teacher, see a special performance of “Pinky Prepares for Kindergarten,” and enjoy healthy snacks.

Ring in the New Year at Please Touch Museum! Catch a special show and unique ball drop at confetti to bring in the upcoming year at the family-friendly time of NOON!
