July 30 – August 31, 2022

Month of Play is our way of saying ‘Thank you, Juneau!” Day of Play became Month of Play in 2020 and it’s here to stay. Complete do-it-yourself activities in the Passport to Play at your leisure, attend the in-person events, or do it all. All activities are free.

Explore. Play. Win!

Passport to Play

The 2022 Passport to Play includes 12 activities: places to visit, things to do, and answers to find. Find more information on the various activities – including locations, tips, and hours of operation – below.

Download the Passport to Play. Then print it, fold it in quarters to make your book, and go have some fun!

No printer? No problem! You can pick up a Passport to Play at the Movie in the Park on July 30 or in the Parks & Recreation office, room 218 in City Hall beginning August 1. If you can’t make it in, send us an email with your address and quantity needed and we can drop them in the mail.
