Kids and Culture

Boston Jerkfest is a family-friendly festival filled with activities for children and adults of all ages! The Kids & Culture zone offers free face painting as well as arts and craft activities. We are looking forward to another great Kids & Culture!

Kids & Culture Zone Coordinator, Kathy Nichols

Jamming with the Pans – Children will make their own percussion items from materials which we provide to them. After they make their instruments, they will jam with the performers of the Tempo International Steel Band.

Face painting – Well sought after master face painter artist Angela Owens will give kids and adults a memorable makeover!  You can expect high energy, bright colors, and amazing creations from this seasoned face painting veteran.  She can work with any audience, from adult models to excited children at birthday parties.  

Arts and Crafts – Community groups are invited to coordinate arts and craft activities

Lawn Games – Community groups are invited to coordinate games for families
