What age children will most enjoy Kidsfest?
Activities are designed for children ages 2 – 10.

What should my child wear?
There’s a messy zone. Need we say more? Please dress your child in clothes that can get dirty! It’s more fun that way.

Is there a cost for each activity?
NO! Your ticket includes admission, plus all activities. There are no additional costs once inside. The only thing not included is food. There are plenty of delicious treats available for purchase, or you are welcome to bring in your own lunch or snacks.

Where is the event held?
Kidsfest San Diego will be held outdoors at NTC’s Ingram Plaza, located at the former Naval Training Center in Point Loma. Kidsfest San Diego will take over more than 100,000 square feet of space within NTC’s Ingram Plaza, San Diego’s flagship destination for arts, culture, science and technology, comprised of 28 acres of beautifully renovated Spanish Revival architecture and offering state of the art venues for events, parties, meetings, retreats and weddings.
