Children's Area

Barefoot Festival is a family-friendly event, we do everything we can to make our event great for the whole family, allowing the opportunity for some good old fashioned free-range fun. In fact Barefoot Festival has been described as one of the most truly child friendly events!

We are delighted to announce that Barefoot Festival has won the The Green Parent Magazine's Best Family Festival Award 2017, as voted by their readers.

And congratulations to Becky Shaw, writer of the winning entry! About Barefoot, she said, "Absolutely brilliant festival, everyone is made to feel welcome. It's like one big family! I went for the first time last year and was 8 months pregnant, I'm now saving up for tickets for this year so I can take my daughter who will be almost one. I have no reservations at all about taking her at such a young age and look forward to taking her for many years to come!"

The Paint Gypsies are returing for Barefoot Festival 2018, bringing back our eco-friendly biogradeable dry-powdered paint, too the Angel Gardens Kids Area. Each day we'll host our paint fight between 3pm-4pm. Saturaday at the same time we'll switch it into a colour run which thanks too the amazing team at Barefoot will be completely free!

This year we are bringing a refined crew of characters too help create colourful memories for you all. We have our Feline Gypsy, its her birthday weekend so make sure you get her extra colourful.
