KidZone and New Music Playground

The KidZone is a family-friendly area offering free, hands-on craft activities for children of all ages.

Budding musicians and enthusiastic sound-makers of all ages will love the instruments found at the Music Sound Station. New this year and created by a local artist out of found and recycled materials, families can try their hand at music making with drumming tables, chimes, melody pipes and a PVC pipe xylophone.  KidZone hours are 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Fri., Sept. 4; and 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sat., Sept. 2 through Mon., Sept. 5.

Kids Crafts Tent

Kids and parents are invited to check out the Kids’ Craft Tent and join the fun! Kids will have a blast expressing themselves while creating a banjo they can strum, a tambourine they can tap or colorful maracas they can shake! Make a joyful sound!

Baby Oasis

Nursing mothers and families can visit the Baby Oasis, a convenient area located in the KidsZone for parents to nurse, change diapers, and relax in a private environment complete with a rocking chair. An assortment of supplies will be provided, including diapers and baby wipes.taste

Have a Kid-sized Portion of Something Tasty and Exotic

Kid-friendly food vendors will be located along the perimeter of the KidZone selling hot dogs, pretzels, popcorn, and more. A Taste of Colorado is also an opportunity for parents to encourage their children to try new foods from places like the Brazil, China, Cuba, India, and the Caribbean, as many of the restaurants offer “taste-sized” portions for one to four tickets.
