Weekend Family Events for Louisville parents! Fun things to do with kids this weekend.

Here, you can find your weekend family fun and weekend events around Louisville!

Let’s talk about summer fun. We see plenty of parents online saying there’s nothing to do. Sure, there are limitations but, also, there’s a LOT to do. This page will focus on recommendations for weekend family fun.

Weekend fun around Louisville is not canceled! Especially for fall, there are many things to do with your kids outside. It’s a wonderful time of year. Correct, some of your favorite events may not be happening but that doesn’t mean you can’t find fun. Oh wait, we found it for you!


 

We know there doesn’t seem to be a lot to do because so many events are not happening. And, weekend family fun seems hard to find.

We assure you, it is out there. There are so many options for your family this weekend in Louisville or nearby. Look no further, we have found it for you.

Features of the weekend: 

 


Sledding! If you haven’t gone sledding yet, you might still be able to squeeze it in before it all melts soon. Be sure to clean up after yourself and don’t leave anything behind – and be safe when going down the hills looking out for others!


Are you eligible for a free Kentucky Science Center membership? Check here.

Mask up and head for learning fun. With all of the levels, everyone is really spread out. One our recent trip we learned the higher you go up, the fewer the people around! The Kentucky Science Center has a macramé workshop this weekend!


We went ice skating at Iceland recently and it was super fun. It wasn’t too crowded and what’s great about public skating is that you skate as long as you want. We got our exercise and had many laughs. Wear high socks so they go fully up to where the skates hit your legs! Then, across the street, go to Panaderia Guanajuato. Omgosh it is so wonderful!
If your younger kiddos need some time out of the house, you can explore the Kentucky Science Center at the Mall St. Matthews. Our writer went to check it out and really thought they did a great job setting it up and managing safety protocols. You need to get tickets in advance to make sure you get your spots! 

The hiking trails miss you! Here are some local options that are great for families. It’s ok if you get dirty, just plan ahead and pack some old sheets or towels in the car. If the kids get muddy, you have stuff to cover the car seats or floors. 

You can also find more ideas for events here.
