Kidfest of Concord, California 

Each year for the last three years we have attended Kidfest at Mt. Diablo High School in Concord, California. The event is Memorial Day weekend each year. Admission is $6 per person over the age of 2 years old with a donation of can food. Admission is $7 without a can food donations. You will receive $2 off per person when you bring two cans to Donate to the Food Bank. Children under the age of 24 months are free. 

Once you purchase your tickets you are given wristbands and asked to write your phone number on your children’s wristband; just in case you get separated inside. 

The Kidfest have vendor booths. The vendor’s booths range from travel agents, toy vendors, clothing vendors, to community organizations, and extracurricular activities such as dance/ballet and karate. 

Zaire’s favorite vendor booth was GO, GO, SQUEEZE with all their free samples. We love GO, GO, SQUEEZE!

He also enjoyed the noodle making booth that taught use how to color our pasta noodles to make art. 

The free activities included the 12 jump houses, free face painting, arts and crafts, taking pictures with Spiderman, Olaf, and Elsa and you could watch the pigs race. 

Zaire wanted to ride the carnival rides for the first time and I bought him a $30 unlimited wristband. Zaire enjoyed the car rides and train rides. He did not like the dragon rollercoaster ride. He said, ”it goes too fast mommy”.

After riding the rides Zaire wanted to get a corn dog. He enjoyed his corn dog while watching the pigs race. Then he was ready to jump again in the jump houses and make some art. 

Zaire wanted to make two art projects and they came out great. 

Before leaving Zaire wanted to try playing Golf. We stopped by The First Tee booth. The First Tee is a golf program all over the country that teaches kids at the age of 5 years old how to play golf. Zaire enjoyed his first time playing golf and asked to join the team. We will look into playing once Zaire turns 5 years old next year. 

We had a great time at the Kidsfest and you will too. Kidsfest will be Memorial Day weekend each year on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday at Mt. Diablo High School in Concord California. Kidfest is open from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday, an open 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Monday.
