The Okotoks Annual Children's Festival has been a popular event during parade weekend for the past 20+ years. The festival includes children's crafts, games, a $1 concession and live entertainment. This year brings Zumbatomic, Norman Foote and Natasha Platt to Okotoks!
Norman Foote is an award winning entertainer from Vancouver who has received international acclaim for his song writing, outrageous props and off-beat sense of humour. His stage show is uniquely Norman and is innovative both musically and visually. With finely crafted routines and songs, Norman is one of North America's most highly regarded entertainer's of his kind.
Elementary music specialist and mother of two young girls, Tasha Platt's first children's album Big Bad Bantam Rooster was nominated for a 2009 Canadian Folk Music Award. Living-room forts, gum stuck to chairs and kids wired on sugar — such is inspiration for this album, written especially for children, and the parents who love them.
Designed exclusively for kids (ages 4-12), Zumbatomic classes are rockin', high-energy fitness-parties packed with specially choreographed, kid-friendly routines and all the music kids love, like hip-hop, reggaeton, cumbia and more.
The Children's' Festival is helped in part by the Okotoks Arts Council
*Hosted in conjunction with the Spirit of Okotoks Weekend Parade.
