This “festival within a festival” offers activities just for kids (and their parents, too!). There, families can hang out, dance and sing along to live music, enjoy amusement attractions, eat healthy food, and have a good time together. Companies can sponsor an area such as the climbing wall, pony rides corral, organic garden area, music stage, or family-friendly performances.
In addition to the family performance stage in KidsQuad, the festival offers live indie music on the Andalusia Stage and the Brooks Stage. Popular DJs will spin danceable music on the Palms Stage. More than 30 local and nationally known bands perform each year at the festival.
