What is Mini Fest?

Mini Fest is the brainchild of art teacher, Sydney Walters. Sydney realized that a lot of kids did not have the access or resources to practice their creativity,

She decided to take action and created Mini Fest, an art-making festival that is accessible, memorable, and engaging for all ages.

Artists and entrepreneurs lead creative workshops that inspire the imagination and let kids reconnect with their creativity.

It is designed for all ages and genders.
