North Phoenix Parents' Group (NPPG) hosts a family event almost every month for our members. Annual membership dues are only $40 and usually covers the cost of food, beverages, arts & crafts, entertainment, admission fees, etc. at our events unless otherwise noted. Membership is prorated if you join mid-year.
NPPG is happy to announce that our monthly family events will restart in May 2021, starting with our signature event, the Water Balloon Festival! Below is a sample calendar of events prior to the pandemic. Events are subject to change as the Board starts planning for the rest of the year.
