March Break 2020 - Things to Do

By Sarah Caldwell, Tourism London

Winter is wrapping up, spring is in the air, day camps and special events abound – yes, March Break 2020 is right around the corner! We’ve got you covered with fun things to see and do all week long (Saturday, March 14 – Sunday, March 22).

Tag your March Break adventures with #LdnGem on your social pages to be featured on the Tourism London Website!

Kick off March Break at the Museum of Ontario Archaeology with demonstrations, crafts, and activities for the whole family at the Maple Harvest Festival! First Nations Elders Dan and Mary Lou Smoke will lead a blessing of the trees in honour of this important first harvest of the year. Warm up with yummy treats while you explore the maple-themed exhibit and the local craft vendors.

Can’t get enough of the sweet stuff? Weekly entertainment, a pancake house serving mouth-watering pancakes with their own maple syrup, and horse-drawn wagon tours await at The Kinsmen Fanshawe Sugar Bush Maple Festival! See how maple syrup was discovered and how it is made today. Maple products are available for sale, including maple syrup, maple butter, and maple floss.

Spend some time on March 19th exploring the history and heritage of Fanshawe Pioneer Village during their free March Break Family Drop-In Day! Be one of the first to explore their new exhibit, and when you’re done checking out the gallery, go for a walk around the Heritage Village grounds.

Weather permitting, other great Winter Fun options include outdoor skating at Victoria Park and Covent Garden Market, or bundle up to enjoy 15 distinct runs for skiing and snowboarding, as well as high speed tubing fun at Boler Mountain.

If staying warm inside is more your speed, Play Away Indoor Park or Adventures on Wonderland are great options for the kids. These indoor playgrounds and family entertainment facilities have everything needed to work off some pent up energy, and where parents can relax and enjoy themselves, too. Or, spare a couple hours over March Break to stop by Palasad South, Palasad Socialbowl, and Fleetway, for bowling, billiards, arcade fun, and more.

Exhibits and stimulating learning experiences at the London Children’s Museum allow children and families to explore history and heritage, investigate the complexities of science and social relationships, and celebrate the beauty in art and culture. Special events taking place over March Break include their March Break Day Camp, Pop-Up Play, ARF Cats, and a Free Family Fun Night!

Enjoy rock climbing, bumper cars, arcade games, and more at East Park's indoor facility, Intencity. They will also be operating a March Break Camp for kids, featuring games, play, arts and crafts, and outdoor activities available if weather permits.

Whether you’ve never stepped foot in a climbing gym, or you’re a professional climber, there is something for everyone at Junction Climbing Centre! They’ll be open early for March Break, Monday to Friday, and anyone is welcome to come and climb. Their day camp will also be running; register now.

In addition to being open to the public for their regular hours and their weekly Imagination Station drop-in program for adults and children, Museum London will be hosting “Crazy for Canada!” This March Break day camp for kids, running March 16th to the 20th, is inspired by the Canadian art on display at the museum. Each day, participants will learn about a different artist and medium, and have the opportunity to create their own works of art!
