Family Festivals

Join us for our next FREE Family Festival — select Saturdays at NOMA packed with looking, playing, art-making, performances, and fun for the whole family! No registration or materials fee are required. Just bring your loved ones, and enjoy!

Family Festivals take place seasonally at the museum. In November of 2019, NOMA welcomed the community for its inaugural Family Field Day in the Besthoff Sculpture Garden — a day centered around outdoor play, the environment, and of course, art. Stay tuned for next season’s festival!
