From exciting music and dance performances to an extravaganza of hands-on activities, artist demonstrations and free souvenirs, Target Free Sizzlin’ Summer Saturdays gives kids and families a cool and creative way to spend July Saturdays at the Heard Museum. Even mom, dad, grandpa and grandma can explore the museum and enjoy the activities for free as well, thanks to support from Target.

The Sizzlin’ Summer Saturdays will begin on Saturday, July 11 and run through Saturday, August 1. The fun starts at 10:30am and ends at 4pm.

Visitors can experience exciting dance performances and meet artists demonstrating everything from basket weaving to Navajo rug weaving.

Kids can enjoy several hands-on activities in addition to dozens of interactive make-and-take activities in three of the museum’s galleries: Every Picture Tells a Story, We Are! Arizona’s First People and Home: Native People in the Southwest. Children’s book authors will be on site signing books, and The Café at the Heard Museum will offer special kids and family lunches.

Each child will also receive free ice-cream treats thanks to Shamrock Farms, and a take-home souvenir bag filled with activity sheets, crayons, stickers and more.

The Heard Museum is located at 2301 N. Central Ave.
