Kids Activities and Games

Tug of Garlic!The festival is family friendly and rich with fabulous art, nature and adventure activities for kids and families!

In addition to garlic games like the garlic and egg toss and sack races, experiential activities at exhibitor booths, and family friendly performance, the Kids Art Tent is filled with creativity and nature inspired art.

In 2022 the Kids Art Tent  expanded to two tents. We had some of our favorite activities such as painting and weaving. We had a clay table, and some other projects including fun with marbles and soft metal tooling.


Fairy Houses made in 2021

There is a tepee to play in, a free drawing table, and other surprise activities.  There were also Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) projects to stimulate kids’ problem-solving abilities.


Shenandoah of Alotta Hoopla  (and partner Tristan, now with 2 children!) had their usual corner booth by the main stage, and did hoop sharing and teaching throughout the two days.  Energizing fun for all ages with Alotta Hoopla who bring joy, hoops and hooping tips. You can’t miss it!
