Pleasanton, CA – Museum on Main announces its 2017 Family Days schedule! The Museum on Main’s staff and volunteers invite families for an afternoon of fun on the Museum lawn! On the 3rd Saturday of each month (June– September) from 11am-2pm, children, parents, and grandparents are encouraged to join the Museum for FREE hands-on demonstrations, crafts, and activities that relate to each month's theme.

“Our goal for each Family Day is to provide families with free, unique, and fun learning experiences during those long summer days,” states Education Director Sarah Schaefer.  “This year, with help from our Community Sponsors, the Pleasanton North Rotary Club Foundation and Cheza Nami, we are bringing back some old favorites from last year and adding two new themes,” notes Schaefer. 

The first Family day will be June 17th and will celebrate all things County Fair! The Alameda County Fair has been a huge part of our community since 1912, and the museum is excited to celebrate that long tradition with free fair-themed activities and crafts. Participants will learn about exhibition booths and animal judging and try their hand at making quilt squares, winning at carnival games, and picking the winning horse at the races!
