ABOUT THE CALENDAR

Minnesota Parent welcomes information about events for families throughout the state of Minnesota. Calendar listings are FREE and can submitted here.

You can submit a listing at any time, but the deadline for possible inclusion in the print publication is six weeks prior to the month of the publication. (For example, June 15 for the August issue.)

All events are subject to change. Be certain to check with the event sponsor either by visiting the website or calling, to ensure the featured event is still viable.

Events taking place for more than one weekend in length will be listed in our "Ongoing" area.
