Kids wandering and playing at festivals is becoming more common as festivals grow in size and popularity. Some participants have mixed feelings about kids at festivals and there are definitely pros and cons with including them in the populous. Some participants are pro children at festivals and don’t blink an eye when they see a babe on the dance floor with them. However, Enchanted Forest has always been pro bringing your family and that has never changed.

What makes Enchanted Forest so much different than other festivals as it pertains to children? The answers are endless but we will break it down to a few key points that exhibit why Enchanted Forest is right for families. First example might be that we offer daycare packages for purchase to our mama and papa bears. That’s right; families who choose to attend our festival have the opportunity to buy 6 hour or 8 hour daycare packages in advance so that kiddos are well taken care of with our daycare fairies and parents have ample amount of time to spend doing whatever they please throughout the festival. Let your children gather with other children to color, craft, and play while you spend quiet time with yourself, with your partner, or with your friends.

Kidslandia is a safe space for all of our little ones to interact with each other and have just as much fun as the adults do. Kidslandia takes its cues from Montessori education and includes a playground, creation station, puppet theater, and other kid-friendly shenanigans that will touch their hearts. Enchanted Forest believes that the education and entertainment provided for the children is just as important as the attractions provided for the adults. We are 100% family supportive at Enchanted Forest.

Enchanted Forest is an alcohol-free event. There will not be alcohol sold on site and we highly encourage everyone to enjoy our event with a clear and conscious mind. If you have experienced both alcohol-friendly and dry festivals you can easily compare the two. There is usually less trash, cleaner campsites and restrooms, and a different, often more pleasurable, vibration throughout the event. We strive to provide a safe and gentle atmosphere that appeals to beings of all ages and we want families to feel safe bringing their children to our event. As Tulku, proud father and co-founder of Enchanted Forest, mentioned to our blog last year, “The fact that we are also an alcohol free event contributes to a very sweet and thoughtful community. All in all, Enchanted Forest seems to attract a very sweet natured group of individuals that come together and form an incredible community that I don’t just feel okay about bringing my child into, but one that I actually feel proud to bring him into.”

Round up the kiddos and purchase your daycare passes now, Enchanted Forest can’t wait to hug and play with your entire family.
