Kids Zone

The Kids Zone returns for another year at the Greater Grand Forks Fair. The Zone provides fun and activities for our younger guests at no extra cost, and puts many of them in one place so parents can get a chance to stay put for a little while. All of these features are included in our regular Gate Fee, which is $7 for ages 14 and above, $5 for 6-13 years of age or free for ages 5 and under. We call it our Kids Zone, but it is more of a place for the entire family to enjoy some time at the Fair.

The Kids Zone is located in the large metal building beside the East gate to the Fair. The building opens when the Fair opens and closes at approximately 9 pm Wednesday and Thursday, 10 on Friday and Saturday, and 7 pm on Sunday. An ATM is located just inside the door in the Kids Zone in case you need some cash for the Gate Fee or some of our great Fair Food located nearby.

Piles of Smiles Face Painting

Miranda from Piles of Smiles will be back again to paint faces of young Fair goers. Piles of Smiles have been providing face painting for our Fair goers for many years. Miranda does a great job of painting unique designs, and is wonderful with the children. The face painting hours are included on the daily schedule pages for each day. There are often long lines for the face painting, so they do sometimes need to limit the line toward the end of the day so that Miranda can finish at the proper time. All CDC recommendations in place during the Fair will be followed.

Miss Bows Messy Mania

Holly Kennedy from Miss Bows Messy Mania has been providing activities for some of our youngest guests for several years. Many of these activities are similar to the activities in the Kidz Science Safari, but are set up for the younger ages. They teach youth a little bit about how science works while being fun for the kids. The Messy Mania will be open during the normal hours of the Kids Zone.

Coloring Wall

The coloring wall returns for a 2nd year at the Greater Grand Forks Fair. The mural is provided by the University of North Dakota ? Program and staffed with students from the program. The mural provides younger guests a chance to work on a group project and have some fun while parents get a little chance to catch their breath. The wall is available during hours the building is open. Stop by and let your kids add their art abilities to the Coloring Wall.
