51st Annual Children’s Festival
July 8 @ 4:30 pm - July 10 @ 1:00 pm$3
The Storytelling Guild Proudly Presents the 51st Annual Children's Festival!
Calling all kids, ages one to 100! This innovative three-day event will take place July 8-10, 2017 at the Britt Gardens in Jacksonville and will bring out the creativity of both the young and the young at heart, as it has for generations. We are looking forward to the future with the theme, "Marching Ahead, You and Fred."
Children and adults can enjoy participating in over 40 hands-on arts, crafts and science projects, such as sand painting, pottery, wood working, easel art and face painting, plus many more. The whole family can look forward to child- focused stage performances, yummy food at Dragon Deli and storytelling on the hill. Don't forget the joy kids get feeding the beloved litter-eating dragons, Rosabelle and Pebbles.
The Festival will be held on the following days and times:
Saturday, July 8 from 4:30-8:30 PM
Sunday, July 9 from 4:30-8:30 PM
Monday, July 10 from 9:30 AM-1:00 PM
Admission is $3 per day for adults and children. Our goal has always been to offer a wonderful day of entertainment and education while keeping the cost to families as low as possible.
