The birds are chirping, the daffodils are blooming, the weather has finally become—dare we say it—predictably inviting…but if your local playground isn’t enough to drag you out of the house, try one of these upcoming festivals. From croissants to books to sculpture to math games, consider your spring calendar full.

Arlington Festival of the Arts

Located in the heart of Clarendon, your kids will glean inspiration for their next Play Doh creation as they peruse the artists’ photography, sculptures, jewelry, and pottery—and maybe get some ideas for Mother’s Day gifts. Make a day of it by saving room for lunch and romping at a local playground.

When: April 22-23
