Choir members are between the ages of 8 and 17 have been orphaned in Africa due to the effects of AIDS, civil wars and under-developed social systems. Their messages in song and dance are heartfelt and heartbreaking but also inspirational and motivational.

Instrument Petting Zoo

“Instrument Petting Zoo” … this is your opportunity to learn about, try & explore a variety of different musical instruments! You are never to young or old to pick up a musical instrument and make some noise.


Tread On It!

Talented Kingston artist Jeff Mann brings his “Tread On It” t-shirt painting to the festival this year. Many Belleville families will remember Jeff from our Family Artfest events in the past. Used and recycled car parts are dipped in paint and pressed onto your shirts to create very unique and colourful designs. You get to design your own shirt, hang it up to dry and take it home to show off to family & friends!  (if you have an old T-Shirt please bring it along … there will be some available free onsite but only while supplies last).
