About Us

KidFest is a non-profit, registered society that works with community businesses, sponsors and groups to provide the local and visiting public a wonderful, fun-filled day of exciting musical entertainment, interactive activities and quality family time.
The weekend begins on the Saturday night before KidFest, with the Quality Food's 'Festival of Lights' fireworks display, part of 'BeachFest'.
On Sunday, plan to spend the day at KidFest, located in the Parksville Community Park - Kite Field (main grassy area beside the Beach Volleyball Courts and Skateboard Park,) from 10-3pm to enjoy the following:
  • Over 25 booths to visit, try a new skill, join a new club, play fun field games, be creative!
  • Local youth talent from Vancouver Island will perform to experience a 'big' performance. Be sure to cheer them on and show your appreciation.
  • Enjoy a variety of rented items geared towards ages 2-15: obstacle course, double slide, boucers, games, train, climbing. They will test your skills and use up some of that 'need to bottle' energy. All items require participants to have a $5 wristband in order to "play all day."
  • MMM, smell your way to your favourite eats and treats.... a variety of foods to choose from to quench your appetite or sweet tooth.

ATM is available on-site
