Plan your weekend with the kids!

We have an area dedicated to families with younger children looking for age appropriate entertainment and activities to keep them busy until the early evening.

The Children and Family Stage is open on Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11 from noon until 5:00 p.m.

2008pridefest124The area has hosted magicians, singers, puppet shows and pirates, story tellers, fire breathers, animal experts, superhero’s and more.

Be sure to take time out during your weekend at PrideFest and gather at the stage to catch an energetic show.

When not at the theatre portion of this area, your children can use up some of their endless energy in the play area, complete with sand, swings, and all sorts of climby things!

Want to perform, volunteer, or sponsor the Children and Family area? Contact us at and  we will be glad to get back to you with more info.
