Your kids will have a blast in the KidZone. They can climb the “Ultimate Challenge” obstacle course bouncer, get their faces painted, make some themed crafts,  and meet llamas in our Petting Zoo! Families can take fun photos at our Photo Booth and then post to social media using tag #FestintheWest! We’ll post these during and after the event and maybe someone will win some swag!

The KidZone has several areas that can be sponsored. All sponsorships include a tent, table, and chairs for your free booth space.

There are several attractions which businesses can sponsor in our action-packed children’s area:

  • Face painter
  • Balloon Artist
  • Imagine Circus acrobatics and stilt-walkers.
  • Bounce House
  • Kids’ Art activities.

Our Kid Zone Sponsors are: Nature’s Twist from Pepsi Bottling Ventures, the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of Pepsi-Cola products, Praxis Church (coming to Cary in 2020), Mosaic Family Dentistry, where dentist Megan Nguyen DDS values patient relationships and  makes it her priority to deliver gentle compassionate care that you deserve  and Oak Village Academy, where children connect with nature to learn.
