Children’s Festival promises free family-friendly fun

Kick-off your summer with some free family-friendly fun at the 2023 Airdrie Children’s Festival, taking place on Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Nose Creek Park.

Founded in 2018, the Airdrie Children’s Festival has grown to become one of this region’s premier events, with more than 10,000 people attending in 2022.

With many things happening around the park all weekend, the Inspiration Stations continue to be the base for the festival. These hands-on, accelerated learning centres are hosted by businesses and organizations

from around the Calgary region, allowing kids the chance to see, feel and learn about things they might not otherwise.

The Entertainment Stage will have performances by Smilin’ Rylan and then, of course, the Children’s Village will have all the games and activities to keep your kids busy for hours! Each activity is curated to meet the Festival’s mandate to ‘Create Curiosity, Inspire Creativity or Remove Fear’.

All that activity can work up an appetite and there will be food trucks on-site to help keep hungry tummies happy.

The entire two-day event is free to attend thanks to sponsors, including Cam Clark Ford, presenting sponsor for the Festival.

“Cam Clark Ford is the perfect partner to have as our presenting sponsor,” says ACFS founder and board chair Pete Lewis. “We have a shared vision to make a difference and to provide opportunities in our community that inspire our younger population to achieve greater things.”
