From a throwback collection to new books, American Girl has been making its 35th birthday an occasion to thoroughly celebrate.

But the festivities aren’t over: The dolls are bringing their A-game at the American Girl Funfest! This free, virtual event features special guests, games, trivia, dancing, and more from July 10-11.

Each day will start out with a 35th birthday dance tutorial at 1 p.m. ET to get kids moving and grooving, followed by a doll-friendly yoga session. Kids will be able to chat with Connie Porter (author of the Addy series), along with Julia Lester, Marley Dias, Iris Zahn, and more in special panels throughout the event. Team USA athletes will also be dropping by on July 11 at 2 p.m. ET to share their American Girl pride!
