KidFest Returns to Concord on Memorial Day Weekend

Bay Area Festivals, Inc. presents its annual Bay Area KidFest, May 27 to 29, at Mt. Diablo High School, in Concord. The three-day event of live entertainment, arts and crafts, rides and games is designed to stimulate learning, exploration and creativity in a child-centered, alcohol-free and smokeless environment.

KidFest features more than 20 attractions to delight youngsters and a food court to keep kids fueled for more fun. The event features pony rides and a petting zoo, and a number of thrilling rides, including the zip line, Ferris wheel, EuroBungy trampoline and giant slide, reminding parents why KidFest Concord was voted Best Community Event, by Claycord.com readers last year.

KidFest also nurtures the joy found in giving back by hosting a canned food collection for the the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano Counties. Since 2010, Bay Area Festivals, Inc. events have raised $80,000 in cash donations for community organizations and collected 30,000 pounds of canned foods for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.

Location: 2450 Grant St., Concord. For more information, visit KidFestConcord.com.
