An important part of the Spartanburg International Festival every year, the Kids' Zone is where learing and fun collide. With tons of interactive, hands-on activities to inspire curiosity about other cultures, this is one attraction at International Festival the little ones definitely don't want to miss.Kids Zone is located near the pavilion in Barnet Park.

Pick up your International Festival passport under the pavilion, play a game, and try some crafts. When you need a break, spread a blanket out on the lawn and enjoy performers from around the globe on the Kid's Zone stage.
