Kids FestJoin Us  for KidsFest on Sunday, September 16th 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.

Live Music

This year, we're excited to feature a high-energy performance by Secret Agent 23 Skidoo.  The band is a Grammy winning, internationally touring, purple velvet tuxedo wearing family funk phenemenon. Combining the positive, primal power of hip hop with the surreal storytelling of science fiction, 23 Skidoo has concocted a potent potion that wows family crowds across the planet.  They will 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!
