About KIDfest

The DC Region’s largest annual family festival celebrating creativity and innovation.

As part of KID Museum’s ongoing effort to expose children and adults alike to the power of hands-on maker learning, KIDfest inspires them to find their own “spark.” The festival encourages attendees of all ages to explore STEM, art and creative pursuits of all kinds.

15,000+ gather at the festival each year to experience one of the best local festivals in the area, as voted by Bethesda Magazine in 2018.
