Kids calendar highlights



10 – The popular youth group Ensemble Hanabi returns to entertain in the park from 9:15 to 11 a.m. 
17 – We kick off a new season of POP! Club, which asks kids aged 3-12 to meet certain challenges as they learn about nutrition and fresh produce. If they do, they receive a $3 voucher to shop at our farm stands.

24 – For sure mark this date on your calendar. We’re cramming a lot of fun into it. It is Strawberry Shortcake Day that also features return performances by Detroit Tap Repertory and Boytoe and Lazarus, and a visit by several of the Big Heads from the Detroit Parade Co.


8 – POP! Club is back with another chance to play with your food.

29 - Circle this day with a big red marker: Utica’s Reptarium brings some of its famous and friendly reptiles to the market for everyone to get up close and personal with.


12 – Here's a sure bet for the topic of today's POP! Club – corn! Because it's our annual Elks Corn Roast! And for a generous helping of cuteness, don't miss a longtime Market fixture – the Mid-American Studio's Little Princess Ballet in Riley Park. 

26 - Sundaes at the Market is what it sounds like: a chance to enjoy sundaes made from a Petey’s donut, vanilla ice cream and Droscha Sugarbush maple syrup. Winner, winner, winner.


2 – The Hanabi Ensemble, which creates beautiful music on marimbas, returns for a second performance, from 9:15 to 11 a.m.

16 – Be sure to seek out the last regular meeting of the POP! Club.


28 – Boo! It’s our Haunted Market, which gets more popular every year! Wear a costume, bring a bag to hold the treats and stop by the Haunted POP! Club, where you can reach your hand into the Shoeboxes of Doom  … if you dare!
