Fairgrounds is a family-friendly festival and children 12 years and Under are admitted free! Kids can roam through a hay bale maze, wander into a custom built planetarium and let their imaginations run wild at story-time. There will also be a feast of delicious yummies at kids' food stalls. Child care is also available, so whether parents plan on being at the front for Ratatat or luxuriating with some fine wine and local delicacies, there will be plenty to keep the kids entertained.

And of course, the festival is called "Fairgrounds" for a reason. An array of classic field games will be keep spirits high and good times flowing. Just a few of the things you'll be able to do include rallying the team and hopping for your life in sack races, getting into a knot at Twister or wielding your cutlery to glory in the egg and spoon race.
