Kalamazoo Events Calendar for Families: June 2021

Summer Kids Outside

Southwest MI & Kalamazoo Events for June, Listed

June is the official start of summer.

The kids are most definitely looking forward to the end of the school year. Parents may be worried about filling the days or weekends with activities. I’ve already started filling our calendar at home with free or inexpensive ways to kick off summer fun and stay busy.

Trips to the park, fishing, summer movies, fairs, and plenty of outdoor activities will have your June filled to the brim.
