There is no waitlist for this event. If available, additional spots will be released on March 24 and March 29. Link to register will be posted on this page.

Guided by volunteer architects, families will choose a construction site from a fictional city grid, design and build a building from recycled materials, and be awarded a certificate of occupancy from the city building inspectors. Geared for children aged 5–13, KidsBuild! lets children understand and formulate ideas about architecture and design as they build a city from the ground up.
