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. Below is a tentative calendar of events for 2019. Events, timing, and details are subject to change.
Adults Only Holiday Party at CB Live: January - Now that the holiday craziness has come to an end, let's celebrate the new year with good friends and drinks as we check out the newest entertainment venue in the Desert Ridge Marketplace. NPPG will be providing heavy appetizers. Drinks to be purchased on individual tabs.
Sky Zone: February - Toddler Time is a great shared experience for child and parent. A time for your little ones to discover the joy of being active, bouncing under the supervision of their parents, and without interference from the big kids. NPPG will pay for admission, Sky socks and donuts for all our members. This event is sponsored by Sky Zone Phoenix.
Tinkergarten: March – Let's explore the great outdoors together! Tinkergarten is an early childhood program that helps children ages 1-8 develop, grow and better prepare through outdoor play-based learning activities. NPPG will provide a pizza lunch.
Dinorama: April - This year NPPG is trading in the Easter Bunny for realistic life-sized dinosaurs! Activities include a dino training session, walk the dinosaur, multiple interactive games, awesome photos, and a baby dinosaur encounter. A continental breakfast will be provided.
Water Balloon Festival: May - Put on your swimwear, grab the kids and towels and come out to one of the BEST events of the year! Bring a cooler full of water balloons and get ready to face off on the Cashman Park basketball court. NPPG will provide food and drinks. This event is sponsored by Jacie Coleman and John Prescott with Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty.
Splash Pad Pizza Party: June – Come join us for a fun-filled splash pad party sponsored by the Desert Ridge Marketplace! NPPG will provide yummy popsicles, pizza and drinks as we try to beat the summer heat.
Splash Pad Pizza Party: July - We couldn't round up enough families for an NPPG staycation this year so we're headed back to the Desert Ridge splash pad for another evening of pizza, ice cream cones and splashy fun.
Lizard Lagoon Pool Party: August - Our kiddos may be back in school but summer’s not over yet! Join us at the Marriott Canyon Villa’s Lizard Lagoon pool and splash pad. There’ll be plenty of splashy fun with overhead water jets and sprinklers to keep the little ones cool. Breakfast pastries, fruit and drinks will be provided.
Jumpin' Gymnastics Party: September - Get ready to run, jump, flip and play! We’ll have 60 minutes of fun-filled games and activities at North Valley Gymnastics before heading up to their party room for pizza. There will be two groups. One for toddlers and parents, and one for older kids who don’t need parent assistance.
Boo and Brew: October - Dress up your kids (adults can dress up too!) and head over to Cashman park for our annual Halloween event. We'll have pumpkins for the kids to decorate, crafts and breakfast will be served.
BubbleManiacs: November - What kid doesn’t want to be placed in a giant bubble? In addition to this must-do photo opp, kids will learn about the science behind bubbles, make their own creations, and interact with lots of big bubbles! Snacks will be provided.
Holiday Crafts: December - Come celebrate the holiday season as we spend the afternoon decorating gingerbread houses, making Christmas crafts and enjoying tasty treats. NPPG is also participating in the Adopt a Kid program and will be collecting gifts at the event.
