Spring Free Family Day

A Free Day of Art, Music & Film!

11 AM–3 PM: Art Making, Family Tours, and Library on Wheels
1–2 PM: Musical Performance: Alphabet Rockers
3 PM: Family Matinee: The Red Balloon

  • Make art inspired by BAMPFA exhibitions and Earth Day.
  • Explore the galleries with family-oriented tours.
  • Get moving to music that moves you with Alphabet Rockers. W. Kamau Bell says their intergenerational hip-hop “creates the soundtrack for the future we want in the world.” 
  • Get a library card or check out a book from the Library on Wheels, pedaling over from the Berkeley Public Library with books for children and adults.
  • Take a break for kid-friendly snacks at Babette!
  • Stay for a special free screening of Albert Lamorisse’s The Red Balloon (1956), the charming story of a lonely French boy befriended by a wondrous red balloon. Their adventures through the streets of Paris are shot in breathtaking color, all the more vivid in this 35mm print. Free tickets for the film screening will be available at the will-call table beginning at 2 PM.
