Family Friendly Events in Green Bay Summer 2020

53 Things to do this Summer in Green Bay: 2018

I’ve spent many hours the last few weeks updating all of the “summer hours” at various businesses/destinations and adding over 500 special events going on in Green Bay this summer!! I have also updated the hours for all of the outdoor swimming pools, wading pools and splash pads. Everything can be found in the let’s go mommy calendar, but for those of you who like to have things consolidated into one place and love lists, below is a recap of the many things going on in the Green Bay area this summer that you should try to check out with your kids and family. Many of these activities are free or cheap (not including purchase of food). Those that are free are noted as such. For more information on these events, you can look them up by date in the let’s go mommy calendar. I have also included links to various events.
