Kids’ Independents’ Day was established in 2015 to create a “festival within a festival” for children. This year we will continue to provide a fun and educational place for kids to interact within the festival, and within their community. The 2016 kID theme is Moon Ranch, and will include a full lunar set, complete with a farm house, barn, and moon creatures. kID will launch 11:30 a.m. and land at 6:00 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday – join us!
Last year, we took the best parts of the larger Independents’ Day Festival and created custom activities and programming to inspire and spark the imaginations of our younger citizens. We proudly partnered with a wide variety of local businesses and organizations to provide an experience that reflected the values of the overall festival. kID also included the festival’s first private nursing and diaper-changing station – an area we hope to grow this year as the festival becomes even more family-friendly.
kID is truly a space that allows children ownership over their creativity, their imagination, and the role they play both within the festival and in our Columbus community.
