New to Kidsfest: Talent Show!

Children & Families of Iowa will premiere its inaugural talent show for youth at Kidsfest, presented by Veridian Credit Union. The youth-based amateur competition will feature acts showcased by Iowa youth vying for a common goal: to be recognized among Iowa’s most talented. 

The Kidsfest Talent Show will be divided into two age categories: ages five to 12 years, and 13 to 17 years. Fantastic prizes will be awarded in each age group. Individuals and groups (up to 10 people) are invited to showcase unique talents and acts, including singing, dancing, juggling or acrobatics, poetry, and drama or novelty acts. Other categories are encouraged and welcomed; however every act must be appropriate for family audiences. No bands will be considered for the competition. 

Important Dates

Finals: March 2-4, 2018. Iowa State Fairgrounds, Varied Industries Building, Des Moines, IA.
