Oceanside Kidfest 2017

Low-cost, fun-filled, kid friendly event on Sunday, August 20 from 10-3pm, where families can enjoy exciting musical entertainment, interactive activities, tasty food and quality family time.


It's that time of year again where planning for this year's event has begun!

We are excited to celebrate our 25th anniversary of KidFest being at the Parksville Community Park and have some exciting new ideas to share. This year is sure to be fun for families, allowing them to learn new skills, participate in a new club, meet some of our local businesses and organizations, plus best of all...

celebrate FAMILY!

Our committee is still short a few people to help us in the role of Stage Entertainment Coordinator, Food Vendor Coordinator and Sponsorship Coordinator. If you or someone you know may be interested and wish to learn more please contact us.

If you'd like to be involved in this year's event as a food vendor, community booth, entertainer, sponsor we'd be more than happy to send you more information.


Unfortunately KidFest is not pet friendly. There are large crowds of people, with the majority of them being yourg children. It may seem obvious that pets shouldn't be left in cars, even for short periods of time yet the SPCA and RCMP are still called out to rescue pets from vehicles.

Many of the activities and entertainment will involve children and their families to be sitting on the ground where it is easy for leashes and pets to cause preventable circumstances. (ie: tripping hazards, leashes tangled, food scavenging, etc.)

Please plan ahead and leave your pets at home where you can be assured they will be cool and comfortable. KidFest and your pets thank you for your cooperation.

HUGE THANK YOU to all of the sponsors, volunteers, emcee Dave Graham, entertainers, food vendors, community booths and everyone who attended this past year's event! It wouldn't be as successful without all of your help and contributions. We appreciate your patience with the line ups at the bouncy items and food vendors.

If you would like to join our committee team to create this fun-filled family event please contact us.

Again, thank you and we look forward to seeing you next year.
