Planning a family vacation but not sure where to go and what to do? Bringing your kids to an outdoor festival is a good way to get your little ones some exposure to culture and enjoy some delicious food and experience the thrill of camping, enjoying some good music and being a part of cool attractions.
To help you out in picking the ones that could work best for you, here we’ve shortlisted the 5 best outdoor festivals you can consider taking your kids to.
Rocky Mountain Folks Festival
If you’re looking to get your kids in an adventure mode, this one’s the perfect place to bring them to. Families can do everything from hiking and swimming to slack-lining and mountain biking here. There’s also an instrument petting zoo for you all to check out.
This one’s well known as one of the largest music festivals there is, and obviously, it had to be on this list. You’ll get to enjoy from over 800 acts, and if that’s not enough, there’s also an activity tent for children which includes crafts, games and other activities to keep those little minds occupied.
Lake Eden Arts Festival
This one’s a bi-annual arts festival that’s completely kid friendly. Your little ones will be able to enjoy puppet shows, magic shows, jugglers and even trapeze artists and hoop dancers. As a family, you can camp near the lake, go canoeing and even try slack-lining. Plus, you’ll also find shops to help you and your kids create crafts and get to enjoy to some poetry and music performances there.
Austin City Limits
The Austin City Limits music festival is another one in the list of the biggest kid friendly events you can take your little ones to. Your kids can enjoy and be a part of fun and exciting activities. The event can take in a huge crowd and there’s everything from good food to markets and fun activities and music.
This festival was launched 40 years ago for a noble and environment-friendly cause, and today, it has some of the best top notch music performances there. Plus, your kids will also enjoy some river activities there (think canoeing, river seining, kayaking and more), and if you’re got art and craft enthusiasts, you can have them enjoy some activities such as bubble wands, face painting, mind mazes and mask making.
Outdoor festivals can be a lot of fun for both- the parents and the kids, and you’ll get to see your children try everything from pony rides to river rafting, soak in some good outdoor exposure and have a good time together as a family.
