Calendar Guidelines
Family Fun, Weekly Family Activities, Kids’ Classes, Community Connection and Totally Teens

The purpose of our monthly Family Fun calendar is to list affordable daily and weekly family-friendly events, activities and kid-friendly classes that take place in San Diego County. Carnivals, theater productions, musical concerts, storytimes, cultural festivals and arts and crafts programs are examples of what you’ll find in our monthly calendar.


  • Weekly Family Activities occur the same day each week and include storytimes, outdoor concerts, arts and crafts, fishing clinics, kid-friendly hikes or tours, family-friendly comedy shows and more.
  • Kids’ Classes encompass ongoing and affordable music, art, preschool, beginner sports instruction such as fishing or tae kwon do and even classes for homeschoolers. Many classes are offered on a drop-in basis.
  • Community Connection is a resource page designed to help busy families find local and online parenting, healthcare and educational information, support and discussion groups, volunteer opportunities as well as playgroups, contests and more.
  • Totally Teens is geared especially for tweens and teens, ages 12 and up. Listings include fun local activities such as sporting events, dances, classes, movies, clubs, book reviews and informational Web sites designed to help teens make informed and responsible decisions.
