Join us for Letterland Days

Self-Guided Free Activities from May 3-23

Since its inception in 2014, Letterland Day has been one of the most popular and highly anticipated children’s events in the Triangle. In fact, it’s been so popular that Letterland Day for 2021 has turned into Letterland Month! Help us celebrate this journey in literacy by taking your own adventure around sites both new and familiar. 

This hybrid self-guided program is a way for you and your children to explore cultural sites around the City of Raleigh while keeping an eye out for familiar characters from your reading journey throughout the school year! Look for Clever Cat, Harry Hat Man, the Golden Girl and many more of your favorite Letterlanders.  Along the way, special literacy themed activities await you at select sites (supplies limited).

It’s up to you and your family to help find all 26 Letterlanders from May 3-23. Visit to learn more about the specific days and times for each Letterlanders and their location. While you are out and about, be sure to take in the sights and sounds of some of the cultural offerings that Raleigh is home to. Be sure to take a family picture or snap a selfie with each Letterlander and tag #WCPSSLetterland, #Letterland and #RaleighParks to help document your journey.  If you do, you might be selected to win a Letterland prize package.

Rides on the train and carousel at Pullen Park are available on select dates and require a fee of $1.50 per rider. To avoid ticket lines, please purchase your tickets in advance on RecLink.

In accordance with COVID-19 guidelines and site policies, mask usage and social distancing are required. A wellness check may take place at certain sites.

Letterland Month is produced by the Wake County Public School System in partnership with the City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department, Letterland International, CW22, My RDC28, and Wake up and Read.
