Events and happenings around Columbia look different than they used to. While many places aren’t offering in-person get togethers, they are offering virtual activities to keep kids entertained and learning. 

So grab your planner, bookmark this page, and start making plans… there’s truly something for everyone and all comfort levels. We’ll continue to update this page as we find out more about what’s happening around town.

If you know of any fun family activities or Columbia events we have missed, please let us know in the comments or feel free to add it here.

Don’t forget to check out our Resources Page for all our local guides – apple picking orchards, parks & playgrounds, COVID-19 resources for families, kids eat free, photographers, preschools, local shopping, and more!

Featured Sponsor :: Summit Adventure Park

Our brand new indoor park includes jumping activities such as Olympic trampolines, two basketball hoops, a designated toddler area for children, wipe out, ultimate dodgeball, a giant airbag, ninja course and of course, a bunch of interconnected trampolines to experience adventure on every visit. We aren’t just a trampoline park, we’re an adventure park!
