Low-cost, fun-filled, kid friendly event on Sunday, August 20 from 10-3pm

It's that time of year again... planning for this year's event has begun!

Wednesday, February 7 at 7pm held at the Quality Resort Bayside Inn, Parksville

Each year the committee members step down and an executive of board positions are appointed/elected to plan and manage the year's event. Roles include: Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and directors. These board members may then also take on coordinator positions: Stage Entertainment, Food Vendor, Site, Volunteer, Community Booth, Wristband Activities and Sponsorship. If you or someone you know may be interested and wish to learn more please attend the AGM meeting or contact us.

Without the support of new committee members the 2018 event is in jeopardy of being cancelled. Please attend and share your expertise!


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.

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.
