We have all the stage acts booked, look for a 'variety theme' to the entertainers this year. Food Vendors are booking up quickly, so make sure to get your fee and paperwork in to be part of this exciting event. We are on track with the same number of Community Booths as last year, let's see if we can get more! Remember it's free to have a booth at our event,but you are not able to sell items, only give-a-ways or activities.
New this year! KidFest will be selling souvenier water bottles to help promote 'hydration' during our HOT event and help you remember all the fun your family had. Only $5 each.
We could not do this with out volunteers throughout the day, so if you can share an hour or two of your time please let us know by contacting us.
An ATM will be on site so don't worry about carrying too much cash. Please read the 'leave pets at home' information below. It is SO important to keep pets cool and comfortatble away from the crowds, as we have many young children in attendance. (FYI: Over 4,000 people attended last year.)
Looking forward to another great year, please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Unfortunately KidFest is not pet friendly. There are large crowds of people, with the majority of them being yourg children. It may seem obvious that pets shouldn't be left in cars, even for short periods of time yet the SPCA and RCMP are still called out to rescue pets from vehicles.
Many of the activities and entertainment will involve children and their families to be sitting on the ground where it is easy for leashes and pets to cause preventable circumstances.
(ie: tripping hazards, leashes tangled, food scavenging, etc.)
Please plan ahead and leave your pets at home where you can be assured they will be cool and comfortable. KidFest and your pets thank you for your cooperation.
Did you know?
It may seem obvious that plenty of water and shade are essential for pets throughout the year, but in warm weather these are lifesaving. You should always ensure that fresh water placed out of direct sunlight, is available to your animals at all times, and that they have sufficient cool shelter from the heat. A dog’s normal body temperature is about 38ºC. They can withstand a body temperature of 41ºC for only a very short time before suffering irreparable brain damage or death. The confines of a car interfere with a dog’s normal cooling process, which is evaporation through panting, and they suffer massive stress very quickly under these conditions.
