We hope that you will join us for crafts and workshops at the Kids Tent during the Fall 2019 Festival!
This area is especially programmed for families with “Seedlings & Sprouts” ages 10 & under.
Join us for hands-on art projects, performances, group activities, storytelling, face-painting, and a Saturday afternoon parade led by the Bulltown Strutters!
The Kids Tent is a hub of activity for our Seedlings and Sprouts, including the Kids Bazaar, which is detailed below.
This special kids area is organized by fun and creative festival volunteers. It takes over 100 to keep it going all weekend!
Kids 12 and under get in free and youth tickets (ages 13-15) are available at a reduced price!
Exploring the farm is encouraged for older children — parents know they can depend on a nurturing, attentive festival staff and community to keep a watchful eye. Younger kids should be supervised by their parents or guardians.
Camping families can choose to settle down in our quiet camping zone, a peaceful cove that is perfect for, well, quiet camping! Ask for directions at the ticket booth when you check in.
