Local Events

Tumbleweeds brings you the most complete guide for Family and Children’s events in Santa Fe and northern New Mexico. Whether you live in Santa Fe or are visiting with kids, find out what family and kid-friendly events are going on today!

A local mom recently launched a new online resource for Santa Fe families. is a website that includes information about schools, summer and after-school programs, day trips, toy stores and bookstores, clothing and gear stores, arts, music, theater and dance programs, sports and fitness programs, clubs and organizations as well as kid-friendly restaurants (Back Road Pizza, Bumble Bee’s Baja Grill, Cowgirl Bar & Grill, among them) and indoor and outdoor activities. The website also includes a local events calendar and a section that offers parents information on birthday parties, pediatricians and dentists. Users can share their own ideas and post comments on their experiences with various schools, stores and programs. And businesses can list their names and phone numbers for free. Janine Pearson said she came up with the idea when she was looking for preschools for her son and realized that there was not a central location to find all the information new parents need.
