Target Family Days

Visit www.target.com/arts and enter your city!

"Target invites you and your family to see more of the arts while spending less. As part of our efforts to support education in the communities we serve, Target sponsors free or reduced-price admission to arts and cultural events nationwide."

We live near the Twin Cities and just happened upon a Target Family Day at the Guthrie Theater last summer.  They were having an open house with crafts and freebies.  I scrapbook, so I was super excited about the photo opportunities!  You had a choice of beautiful costumes from various plays that the Guthrie has put on.  Here is a picture of my son and his friend as "royalty" from one of the Shakespeare plays.


I encourage you to check it out!  The Target volunteers were super nice...and everything was FREE for this one.  If you live near the Twin Cities, here are some other options:
