Kalamazoo parents and caregivers, we have a number of fun family activities and events going on in the area this weekend. Consider…


Art Hop

Friday, April 4 from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm in downtown Kalamazoo. 

  • A free event held on the first Friday of every month, Art Hop is an evening of art exhibits and events; one of the great things to do in Kalamazoo. It’s fun, interactive and a great way to explore downtown that you can do alone, with friends or family, and you don’t have to be “artist” to enjoy it!
