Huntsville Weekend Roundup January 15-18

Happy MLK Weekend, Huntsville! January weekends are usually pretty quiet in North Alabama, but this weekend still has some awesome things going on in the Huntsville area for kids & their families. Our full Event Calendar also has more activities happening in Huntsville this weekend if you don’t see anything below that suits your fancy.

If you do choose to go out please remember your mask and hand sanitizer or just stay home if you’re able. Covid rates for North Alabama are really bad right now.


Our Learning Expo is going virtual this year. Starting January 31 we’ll be doing Q&As with local independent schools, homeschooling organizations, summer camps, sports programs, and more! All the education info a parent could want in one easy location.  Interested in participating? Email us at with the subject line “Learning Expo 2021” and we’ll get in touch.
