Fun for the whole family! 11am – 3pm. This FREE event is your pre-summer destination for introducing kids to new opportunities at the club and community level, and for parents to learn more about keeping their kids engaged in healthy activities.

Brought to you by the Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame and PISE, the festival features more than 30 activities for kids and families to try out including Adrenaline Zipline (by donation), outdoor rock climbing, tennis, rugby, adapted sports, and so much more! There is no cost for organizations to participate, or for families to attend!

The primary purpose is to inspire families to be more active, and to encourage youngsters to be more physically literate by getting involved in sports and recreational activities.
