Great Kids Village Silver Spring – March Madness of Fun Kids’ Events, New Location Coming Soon!

Great Kids Village Silver Spring has been *the* open play space, activity center, kids’ performance venue and ultimate birthday party locale in Montgomery County since Andrew and Paula Ross of Andy’s Parties brought their genius to the DC-MD border.

But to quote The Jeffersons theme song, they are moving on up…to an even larger, more awesome location in nearby lower Montgomery County…big announcement and details coming soon!

And these final weeks in Silver Spring at the Georgia Avenue location (in the old Mayorga Coffee space), they are bringing us TONS of incredible events for our kids!

Of course, the nearby Columbia, MD location will remain open as usual. BTW, this is my family’s FAVORITE weekend play spot. My husband can usually be found on a Sunday receiving ambulatory services from EMT Eve in the real live ambulance on site, while Charlie hustles at the foosball table.

Here are the special March events, in addition to general admission drop-in playtime:

    are they closing for good in SS or just moving…again?

  2. they’re just moving to a new location – announcement coming soon!

  3. Nicole Porter says

    I hope the new space is cleaner and offers more.  We were really disappointed with a visit to play at the SS location. 

  4. Is the location in North Bethesda?  Because Bethesda doesn’t need another indoor play area.

  5. I’ll keep you guys posted when they announce!
