Next Family Fun Night - February 8, 5:30-7:30pm
with a special Valentine Theme!

In the Art Studio, there will be a wide variety of art materials for you to make your own special valentines for those you love. For builders and inventors, we'll also have our new ART CART available for making recycled art projects. In the main museum, enjoy all of our exhbits and especially our newest exhibit featuring a recycling/sorting center, recycling/garbage collection truck, compost bin, costumes and props all designed to help children (and adults) learn about reducing, reusing, recycing and rot (composting) to help the environment.

Cultures, Seasons & Holidays

Special Events: holidays and ethnic events

Throughout the year, Habitot celebrates our diverse community with multicultural events and seasonal fun. With special art activities, exhibit activities, storytelling and frequently — dancers, musicians, or other performers — we introduce young children to the art, culture and traditions of families throughout our community.

Join our “Community Connections” advisory group if you are interested in helping Habitot host these events in culturally responsive ways, or if you can connect us with performers, artists or storytellers. Here is a selection of Habitot's frequently offered special events. Check the Events Calendar for this year's upcoming events.
