We’ve got family fun covered at the Stewart Park Festival!

There truly is something for everyone, and we’ve planned it out so that your kids will sleep soundly after a day filled with activities, entertainment and plain ol’ fun! Sounds nice, right?

There will be three tents in the children’s area this year.

One tent for crafts and instrument building, the second tent is for workshops and the third will be an instrument petting zoo, sponsored by Long & McQuade

  • Our Kids’ Area Workshops give kids the chance to make fun art projects and crafts, play games, and more!
  • The tented area is located across the green bridge.
  • We’ve also lined up some amazing performances this weekend just for the kids. Check out the schedule and plan out your memorable day at the park.
  • Some of our Kids’ Area workshops have limited spaces on a first-come, first-served basis
    (MusicPlay is for 3-5 year olds).
There will always be something on the go outside of the workshops for kids!
  • Face painting from 11:30-3:00 both days
  • Stiltwalkers roaming Sunday:Tallbeat Stilt Drumming Troupe
    This group of stilt-drumming performers brings you the spectacular fusion of the arts of afro-brazilian drumming and stilt-walking. Tallbeat, with their drums of thunder, will roam any event, carving out a path through thick crowds.
  • Instrument Petting Zoo - Long & McQuade
  • Crafts - all day/ both days
