What is Kids’ Festival?
From the outset, Kids’ Festival was established to provide an educational experience for the family which combines entertainment, exhibits, and participation activities. Kids’ Festival is a connecting opportunity for all Tulare County Programs and services and works to promote education to the highest level.
When is Kids’ Festival?
Kids’ Festival is a single day event held annually it will be held Saturday, November 17, 2012 from 9:30 am to 4 pm. The date is significant in that it is the prelude to the Thanksgiving Holiday and has provided exceptional timing for very good attendance. On the same day in the Main Ballroom Cyberquest, a countywide technology competition for students will be held. While this is not connected with Kids’ Festival per sey, it does affects its attendence in a most positive way.
Who attends Kids Festival?
In Visalia the Kids’ Festival audience averages 5,000 over the course of a single day. Its composition is the family unit with children between the ages of 2 to 12. Many in attendance have grown up with this event and return year after year with families and children of their own.
Our focus is on family fun and the promotion of products and services of the Tulare County region. Kids’ Festival is eclectic with something for every member of the family. Information booths, food booths, the American Traveling Carnival and live stage entertainment are real crowd favorites. Signed up for 2010 are: Kids’ Edition Dance Troup, Mariachi Nueve Generacion, Farley’s Elite Tae Kwon Do, Sierra Performing Arts and Riata Ranch International. We will post new additions as are registered.
