The Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair is all about children and families. And for 125 years now, it has been succeeding in fulfilling its goal of providing a slew of fun activities for those young, or just young at heart. Added to that tradition is the exciting Kidz Zone, now in its sixth year, which provides the definition of “fun” to families with exciting live performances and interactive exhibits.
New this year to the Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair “Kidz Zone” is a focus on our community’s non-for-profit sector, specifically their child & youth engagement programs - great fun is featured in our community’s support network!
Kids 2-12 will dance, draw, sing, plant a pumpkin seed, read a book at Campfire Corrall, move and groove to stage entertainers and meander through the 18,000+ square feet of space collecting inspiration from non-profit organizations such as SOS Children’s Village, God’s Little Acre Farm, Umoja Operation Compassion Society, The Canadian Project for Manners & Civility (aka Judi the Manners Lady), Surrey Public Libraries, Surrey Parks & Recreation, Surrey Children’s Festival, and of course RCMP Foundation, with their Kidz Fun Zone. Children can get a ride on the El Paso Train or play 9 holes of Bells & Whistles Mini-Golf.
Create-It Emporium will produce a very memorable large-scale piece for the community with help from all the children that come through the Kidz Zone.
Kids will experience fun and meaningful experiences.
In order to provide an area of refuge for the youngest attendees of the Rodeo & Country Fair, there is also an area called Momz Zone (hosted by SOS Children’s Village) where the caregivers can change babies clothes/diapers, feed, allow their young ones to nap etc in quiet solitude.
London Drugs ID Program - Part of London Drug’s sponsorship includes this special area of Kidz Zone where parents can get an ID package for the children. This was a big success last year and we are very happy to have them back.
Located Just Outside Kidz Zone is Cone Zone - youth can drive go-karts around a track, with traffic markings, hazards and other drivers. Gain valuable safe-driving knowledge!
