Fun for Kids and Kids at Heart
When your kids are ages 10 and younger, they may not have a care in the world except when snack time will be next. They’re joyous, energetic, and innocent, so why not indulge their interests at the Virginia Children’s Festival? Here more than 100 activities of all varieties are available for a full afternoon of fun.
For literary lovers, interactive story telling will take your kids on wild adventures and bring to life the joys of reading. Kids with a knack for the arts can take part in arts and crafts. Those who love to learn can enjoy educational displays, cultural experiences, and even military demonstrations for lessons they won’t find the in the classroom.
And just because this is a festival for your kids doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the fun with them. While there are no specific adult activities, you’re welcome to observe and learn with your kids to bring out your inner child.
