Programs and Services








When the 16th Annual Kidsfest gets underway on Saturday, May 6, there's going to be a major change!  We are excited to announce this year's Kidsfest will take place at Cascades Park from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and there will be free admission for all thanks to the City of Tallahassee's Family First Initiative!.   There will still be area businesses and non-profit organizations providing children's hands-on activities.  There will be live children's entertainment on the Capital City Amphitheater.  Imagination Fountain will be flowing and providing a fun way for youngsters to cool off.  Food vendors will satisfy your taste buds and all the while, you'll be supporting Kids Incorporated of the Big Bend - a worthy non-profit organization serving families with infants and toddlers through age 3 and pregnant women in Jefferson, Leon and Madison counties, Florida. 

We have a new location and a new logo (the latter is thanks to Evoke Advertising!) but some things will be familiar.  As we did last year, we will emphasize literacy and are asking exhibitors to tailor their hands-on children's activities around the theme of a children's book.   We will be offering a book fair where families may purchase children's books at very reasonable prices.  

We anticipate there will be bounce houses, games, arts & crafts, and of course, Kids Incorporated couldn't host an event without making batches of Oobleck and also Gak!  We anticipate some costumed characters may drop by and the live children's entertainment on the fabulous stage at the Capital City Amphitheater will add a whole new dimension to Kidsfest!  

Kidsfest is a labor intensive event.  We could not do this event without the dedicated volunteers and our staff who work their hearts out to share this family-friendly event with folks in our community.  It's tiring; it's often hot and the day is long.  But our staff and volunteers go out of their way to make it a day of fun for young and old alike and we thank them so very much for making Kidsfest possible!
