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.” 15,000+ gather at the festival each year to explore STEM, arts and creative pursuits of all kinds, and to experience one of the best local festivals as voted by Bethesda Magazine.

Come see how we’re cultivating a community of creative makers and innovators, and inspiring all ages to invent their future. Robotics, engineering, biotechnology, interactive art, and much more—the future starts here!
