Children’s Stage

Come visit the Children’s Stage (Lafayette and State Streets) for some great family fun. In no time at all you’ll be amazed by feats of magic, be dancing and marching in the streets, or maybe bringing home a new juggling trick to amaze your friends.

Children’s Stage returns to Lafayette Street!
Entertainment, rides, games and more are located throughout the Festival on both Saturday and Sunday!

Plus the Old Fashioned Carnival returns at 600 S.  Broad Street on Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday.
