Family Festivals

See the museum like never before. Family Festivals are select Saturdays at NOMA packed with looking, playing, art-making, performances and fun for the whole family! Family Festivals take place two to three times per year. No admission, materials, or registration fees are required. Just bring your loved ones and enjoy!

While we were apart during the pandemic, NOMA partnered with local organizations and creatives to host our very first Virtual Family Festival: Courage & Care in August 2020. Visit the Festival page to enjoy recorded workshops, art-making activities, a sensory art walk & more!

Keep an eye out for our Spring Family Festival, coming in May 2022.
