DIY Kids


Kids are at the heart of the DIY Homesteader Festival. Our kids really inspire us and we know that kids are the future of food security and the continuation of sharing these skills! For those reasons, kids 12 & under get admission to the festival site and DIY Kids’ Area for FREE. If they want to attend the adult workshops they can upgrade to a teen ticket.

The DIY Kids’ Area is packed with fun nature and homesteading related activities for children and youth. Colouring, play dough, nature weaving, and more great activities will be available throughout the day. You can also stop in for one of the Kids’ Area Workshops that are led by experienced workshop leaders – and some led by expert kids!
