Kid Stuff


Starbelly Jam is a child-friendly festival for the entire family, with many fun activities for kids, and plenty of knee-high entertainment.

Our covered craft free-for-all zone is fully stocked with a wide assortment of do-dads and crazy odds and ends that are just begging to be transformed into festive hats and other wearable decorations.

Magic abounds around the grounds, with jugglers juggling and all sorts of clowning around. Our Starbelly Parade is always a big hit with kids, both young and old, as the procession dances around the grounds to its own music, singing and laughing.

Starbelly Jam is held in the Crawford Bay Park, so we have swings, slides, teeter-totters and more, for the fun and enjoyment of our youngest guests. The park has lots of room so there’s plenty of space to toss balls or frisbees, or just to run around with abandon, and when the weather’s hot we have fancy sprinklers to play around and cool down with.

children 12 and under get in free!

There will be entertainment for kids of all ages!

*Parents, please make use of our Milky Way Family Tent in the cedars near the playground if you need to rest with your little ones. Come read a story, put your feet up, and have some quiet time. Note: this is a parent supervised area (not babysitting) where little ones can calm down from the business of the festival, and a nice quite place for rest and relaxation. We’ll have a change table and comfy couches for mom’s to breastfeed and pillows and mats for little ones to nap on if they’d like.
