Arizona Everything Kids Fest

The Everything Kids Fest is probably the best thing you can do with your child this fall.   Last year the Everything Kids Fest was in October and it was really too warm.  Thankfully, this year it is being held November 17-18th and that is a great time of year!

This year Cat in the Hat will be making a special appearance along with Peter Pan, Cinderella, Fairy Godmother, Tinkerbell, and the Little Mermaid.  Last year, my son was so excited to see Thomas the Train perform in the stage show.  And he loved petting the animals in the little petting zoo.


The cost of entry covers all of the activities except for the food or if you purchase anything else from the vendors.  Inflatables, coloring activities, crafts, petting zoo, horse rides, and specially featured characters are a hit with the kids.  We never meant to stay most of the day, but we ended up doing just that because it was so much fun!

The cost of food is similar to a fair or going to the ballpark, so plan to bring food or be prepared to pay for it there.  If you or your child has allergies or gluten issues, be prepared to bring food as there aren’t many choices for these types of situations.

It is so worth it to go as there are so few events like this in Arizona that encompass so many spectrums without having to pay extra!  I highly recommend going and maybe we will see you there!
