So Much to See & Do

We are excited to celebrate KidFest with the community and those enjoying the community on vacation each year! With similar target audiences between KidFest and the QF Children's Sandcastle Competition event, we work together and alternate event dates each year to match the tides that work best for the sandcastles being built on the beach. Our events alternate between the 2nd and 3rd Sunday in August each year. Typically the next year's event date is announced in early September.

KidFest is sure to be fun for families, allowing them to learn new skills, participate in a new club, meet some of our local businesses and organizations, plus best of all...

celebrate FAMILY!

Our committee is always looking for people to help us in the many coordinator roles or just be a director and share your opinions and votes. We also need 20-40 people to volunteer on the day of the event in order to make it run smoothly. If you or someone you know may be interested and wish to learn more please contact us.

If you'd like to be involved in our event as a food vendor, community booth, entertainer, or sponsor we'd be more than happy to send you more information or you can visit the related pages to your involvement on our website.

Reminder: Please Leave Pets at Home

Unfortunately KidFest is not pet friendly. There are large crowds of people, with the majority of them being young 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.

Thank You

HUGE THANK YOU to all of the sponsors, volunteers, emcee Dave Graham, entertainers, food vendors, community booths and everyone who attended this past year's event! It wouldn't be as successful without all of your help and contributions. We appreciate your patience with the line ups at the bouncy items and food vendors.

If you would like to join our committee team to create this fun-filled family event please contact us.

Again, thank you and we look forward to seeing you next year.
