Calling kids of all ages! The fall season maybe upon us but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end.
This year’s 21st Annual Children’s Fest promises a weekend filled with spectacular live entertainment and an array of exciting hands on activities that are sure to please the whole family.
For fabulous fun, food and festivities, there’s something for everyone at Children’s Fest on September 19-20, 2015 with our expanded lineup of family friendly activities from sports and games, to experimenting with science and dabbling in the arts.
Launched as a project of the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) back in 1995, in 2013 they were joined by co-hosts the Bulimia Anorexia Nervosa Association (BANA) to welcome the more than 63 thousand visitors that have attended our annual Children’s Fest since its inception in. Coming from all over the region, generations of young adventurists have enjoyed the annual weekend activities and family fun.
“Fun, affordable and local is how to best describe this event. Community is all about bringing people together to create memories with their friends and families. We continue to ensure that this event is inclusive to all by keeping the cost very low and the excitement high.” says Luciana Rosu-Sieza, Interim Executive Director from BANA. “It is the perfect place to encourage exploration and discovery for children with the many interactive, hands- on activities.”
