The Heron prides itself on being a family-friendly festival and we have a number of activities for kids (in addition to dancing and enjoying the music!).

The Beach:

It’s a great place to cool off from the summer heat while still being able to hear the music. Certified lifeguards and a marked swimming area ensure everyone’s safety and continued fun. Beach hours are Friday 12-7, Saturday 9-7 and Sunday 9-6.


Kids’ Tent:

The Kids Tent is a fun, safe place for kids and parents to play together during their time at the festival! We offer activities for children from toddlers to tweens – a shaded play space with a sandbox and corn table, a multitude of crafts offered on the hour, Compost theater, talent show, dress-up and lots of energetic, creative activities for kids to be engaged in at the Great Blue Heron!


Teen Tent:

This is an activity tent near the beach for our teens & their families. You’ll find games, crafts, tie-dye & hula-hoop projects, board games & more. The highlight is the Saturday night beach party! Teens may come and go as they like; parents do not need to be present. Volunteers and project leaders are there during open hours.
