KidAroo- A New Music Festival for Kids

The Black Rock Arts Foundation announces KidAroo, a new music festival for kids, benefiting programs at San Francisco’s Yick Wo Elementary School, on Saturday, September 25.

KidAroo is a new music Festival that lets Kids rock out on the Marina Green and is a fundraiser for San Francisco’s Yick Wo Elementary School, KidAroo kicks off Sept. 25. It’s like a Lollapalooza for kids, coming to San Francisco’s Marina Green later this month. KidAroo is an all-day music festival for kids with amazing bands, jugglers, face painting, balloon animals, and more. Organizers are expecting 2,000 kids and family members to attend this unique San Francisco event.

“San Francisco is a fun city. And in that tradition, we wanted to put on a world-class music festival for all Bay Area kids,” said Christopher White, the event’s director.

Performers at the even include Choo Choo Soul, an LA band that has been featured on the Disney Channel, Chicago’s Ralph’s World, and the Sippy Cups — one of the best-known Bay Area kids’ bands.

The event runs from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Saturday Sept. 25
The Little Marina Green
800 Marina Boulevard
San Francisco–across from the Exploratorium

Tickets are $20 each. A family four-pack of tickets costs just $60. They can be bought here

All proceeds from KidAroo will go to support programs at San Francisco’s Yick Wo Elementary, located at Jones and Lombard. White, like all of KidAroo’s organizers is a volunteer with Yick Wo Partent Teachers Organization.

More information about the event can be found at
