Wild NW Weekends

June 24 – August 25

Fill those lazy summer weekends with wonder, exploration, and pure joy. Every Wild NW Weekend at KidsQuest is full of free play, special visitors, and new activities to create a love of learning that will last all year long. Check the schedule and save the date for something that’s right up your alley, or visit on a whim to see what the weekend has in store for you.
