Day Out With Thomas at Greenfield Village

Thomas Pulls into Greenfield Village

Spread the love

Does your child love Thomas? My daughter was a big fan of Thomas as a Toddler and Preschooler. She loved the annual Day Out with Thomas event. It was such a treat for her to be able to ride on Thomas and participate in the Thomas activities.

About Day Out With Thomas

Each spring Greenfield Villageโ€™s hosts Day Out with Thomas, typically on 3 weekends in April and May. This year they have switched to 2 weekends in May, but added Fridays. Thomas will be at Greenfield Village on May 13-15 and 20-22.

We attended Day Out with Thomas at Greenfield Village twice when my daughter was younger. We really enjoyed Day out With Thomas each time that we attended. My daughter loved getting to ride on Thomas and having her picture taken with him. They also had lots of activities including story time, stamps, play tables. She also enjoyed exploring Greenfield Village.

Day Out With Thomas - Riding the Train with her aunt

I recommend Day Out with Thomas for families with children age 4 and under. Even at 4, my daughter was as interested in exploring Greenfield Village as she was in participating in the Thomas the Train activities. We visited Greenfield Village on a Thomas weekend when she was 5, and she did not even ask about any of the Thomas activities or riding on Thomas.

3 – What should I bring?

Be prepared for the weather. Sunscreen, water bottles, or rain gear as appropriate. Make sure to grab your camera. There is stroller (or wagon) parking available at the train depot.

Your child may wish to bring their favorite Thomas toy. There are usually a few train tables setup for kids to play. I just made sure my daughter kept her train away from the play tables.

You can bring your own food into Greenfield Village. There are also several places to eat. We have always enjoyed Taste of History and the food stands.

My daughter has loved visiting Greenfield Village since our first trip to Thomas when she was 2. By 4 she was as interested in the historic buildings as she was in the Thomas activities. Greenfield Village’s playground is a huge hit with the kids.

    I have never been to Greenfield Village but the Day out with Thomas sounds like a fun time, especially with a soon to be 3 year old boy.

  2. My kiddos would love this. It would be a great adventure for them. Thanks for the chance to win. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. My kids love Percy as well. Great to see they have a sensory friendly event now! Two of my kids have autism and we had to leave the event twice last year and almost missed our ride. This is great news.

  4. Just discovered your page – thanks for presenting the opportunity to win tickets! My 2 year old loves Thomas & Percy. ๐Ÿ™‚
