Kids FestJoin Us  for KidsFest on Sunday, September 17 from noon - 4:00 pm.  

Back by popular demand, Kidsfest returns to Old Westbury Gardens this fall!  Visitors are invited for a day of fun and educational activities throughout historical Old Westbury Gardens.

KidsFest is an interactive celebration of Kid Power and the Environment hosting upwards of 1,000 visitors annually!  Immersed in history, the former Phipps estate is the ideal location for students of all ages, with unique opportunities unlike anywhere else on Long Island.

We will be conducting a FOOD DRIVE in partnership with Island Harvest. 1 in 10 Long Islanders are food insecure, so please bring a non-perishable donation to benefit Island Harvest.

Tim Kubart & the Space CadetsLive Music

This year, we're excited to feature a high-energy performance by Grammy-winning Tim Kubart & the Space Cadets!  Tim Kubart & the Space Cadets put on a performance for the whole family that will make everyone at Old Westbury Gardens want to jump up and down and dance the entire afternoon! Concert at 2:30 pm. Rain or Shine!   .
