"K-Days" are short for "Kindergarten Days." They are Boston's month-long celebration welcoming kindergartners to their first day of school. The 2-hour parties start in August and end with a finale at the Boston Children's Museum in September. All events are free. Here's how it works.


  • July - Families visit their local library to pick up a bright yellow "I'm going to Kindergarten shirt." Families will also get a summer guide, a summer reading list, and a bookmark.

  • August - Families attend a local kindergarten party (most are at local libraries)

  • September - Families attend the city-wide celebration at the Boston Children's Museum


Below is the 2024 schedule:




















  • Tues, Aug 27 | 4:00pm - 6:00pm | Eliot School (16 Charter St-North End)
