WOSU Kids Second Saturday Kids Day logo

Major funding provided by the DiMarco Family Fund of The Columbus Foundation

Second Saturday Kids Days are free events that take place in the Ross Community Studio at the WOSU headquarters. At each Second Saturday event, there’s a new theme to explore that combines imagination, interaction and technology to explore art, science, math and reading. Children will experience learning through characters they already know and love.

Major funding for Second Saturday Kids Days is provided by The DiMarco Family Fund of The Columbus Foundation

When Ann and Tom DiMarco first learned about WOSU’s new headquarters, they looked beyond the physical space to what could happen inside the building. They tailored the focus of their gift to match what is important to them – families and children. The generous gift from the DiMarco family provides program funding for the inaugural three years of Second Saturday Kids Days for Central Ohio families.

COVID Protocols
PLEASE NOTE: WOSU’s first priority is keeping our staff, members and community safe.

We are closely monitoring the pandemic conditions and will communicate any updates to the Second Saturday schedule should public health guidelines change.

Second Saturday Kids Days are free to attend, but pre-registration is required. Unfortunately, walk-in registration is not available due to health and safety protocols for events and gatherings at the university.

Masks are encouraged while indoors, regardless of vaccination status.
