the Event List

MrJohnny's KidEvents began in 1999 as a single page "faxed" listing of activities for children in Austin. Our early editions reached a whopping 200 readers. Now there are more than 4000 current subscribers to the Weekend Events E-letter while the website draws more than 5000 unique visitors monthly.

Our website is referenced in event and parenting websites and blogs all over the Austin area and the Weekend Update is forwarded to major employers such as IBM, National Instruments, and the City of Austin as well as many Moms Clubs and Nanny Groups.

Each week, Kynna Sullivan, our Austin Editor spends many hours researching and verifying the information that goes into our list to make certain that you we continue to provide current, accurate and useful information to help busy moms and dads find the best opportunities to spend quality time with their children.

Our readers are active parents in the Austin/North Austin area with children ages 18 months to 12 years old.
