Day of Play Family Festival

Empty over-sized boxes delight young builders.

Now in its 10th year, the Edward Street Day of Play Family Festival is a virtual this year!  Join us online for 10 days of new fun and activities.  Miss a day?  Not to worry, all of the activities are available online, year-round.  We hope to return to an in-person event next year, but for now, join in at home where every day is a day of play!

Our one-day festival features more than 60 fun, interactive activities across seven play areas which emphasize how young children learn through play. Held at Elm Park, this annual event attracts 5,000+ people. A companion monthly newsletter highlighting a dozen activities reaches more than 10,000 families in Central Massachusetts.

It takes a village to run an event of this size and we are able to offer the festival free of charge because of the generous support of local sponsors, community partners, and agencies who volunteer their time to make this day a success. Musical performances, art activities, an obstacle course, STEM and early literacy activities entertain participants large and small.
