Event Day

The world is a canvas to our imagination. We want to provide inclusive opportunities to learn, to dream and to be curious, in a safe, supported environment. This event has no other agenda than to be a real gift to our kids and our communities.

Children's Village

The Children’s Village at Nose Creek Park is a play space designed to be grand in space and scope with especially unique activities. While planning is still taking shape, concepts like a musical petting zoo, extreme craft centres and adventure style carnival games are all ideas being considered.

Inspiration Stations

Through the inspiration station activities, we want kids to learn through a form of play, but we also want young people to see the leaders in these centres as role models, and think about future career possibilities. For example, a staff member from the Zoo with small reptiles to share might inspire a dream of a degree in biology. A leader teaching landscape painting might raise the possibility of becoming a movie set designer. Our goal is to try to present high level career opportunities with groups that typically may not be showcased.

Entertainment Stage

Lastly, you can’t have a festival without an Entertainment Stage. We will have four main stage children's performances on the BMO Entertainment Amphitheatre stage, supplemented with great local talent in between. Stay tuned for more information on event day scheduling.

Other Activities

Our goal is also to promote cultural diversity. There will be an Indigenous Peoples component to the festival. We believe this is important to foster an appreciation of our local history, and to the shaping of non-judgement and understanding of all people.

Workshops

Workshops will be intimate settings, run throughout the city during May. Sign up and attend whatever topics are of interest. Topics, details, time, locations all still to come. Check back often or sign up for our newsletter to learn more as they are planned.

Please check the in the description of the workshop for minimum age requirement. We respectfully request that due to limited spaces, each child sign up for only their favorite workshop. This will allow lots of kids to participate.

Healthy Meals Made Easy

It’s very important to understand that food is more than fuel for our body, and that meal time is more than eating! Food is an emotional connection, reason why we need to develop and keep a healthy relationship with it, in order to stay healthy mentally, physically and emotionally and prevent eating disorders. Join us for this fun food workshop!
