Hullabaloo Family Arts Festival (Prize Pack Giveaway!)

This Giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to the prize pack winner, Laura Crawford!


Get ready, San Diegans, for one full day full of music, art, dancing, crafts, games, and reading, all for KIDS. The Hullabaloo Family Arts Festival was founded by its namesake, San Diego’s own kids folk music duo, Hullabaloo. My kids and I first saw them last year at the San Diego Botanic Garden (formerly known as the Quail Botanical Garden) and all of us fell in love with them.

Their energy and enthusiasm is contagious and the kids can’t help themselves but to get up and dance whenever these two guys are on stage. As they say themselves, “We play the time-tested favorites we all grew up with and we write songs that make kids laugh, think, sing, dance, clap and stomp their feet.” Hullabaloo will play two sets at the festival, one at noon and one at 3:00pm, and they will be joined by several other kids bands and storytellers like: Bucket Ruckus, The Hollow Trees, and Patty Hall. Check here for the schedule of music acts.

In addition to all the music and dancing, there will also be plenty of other fun activities including: a petting zoo, a dress-up zone, a children’s lit area, kida yoga, a baby sign language demonstration by Joann of Sign4Baby, and a creativity zone sponsored by the awesome artists of Art Soup. You can bring your own food in but there will also be yummy food trucks so you can buy food there.

    year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
