Everyone knows Bumbershoot is a great place to discover new music and art, but let’s not forget the little ones! Youngershoot is made just for kids (and their parents).

Seattle Children’s Museum returns to curate engaging activities in the Youngershoot Kids Zone, situated in Alki Court (adjacent to The Vera Project and the SIFF Film Center). The Kids Zone is open daily from 11AM–6PM during the Festival. Children age 10 and younger—who get into Bumbershoot for free—along with their caregivers can enter this exhibition area and enjoy a variety of hands-on activities and interactive programs.

Your Child's Safety

KidSafe Program

Bumbershoot offers free wristbands to help reunite lost children with their parents and/or guardians as part of our KidSafe program. To participate, simply visit the nearest info booth to complete a short registration form with your contact info and get a numbered wristband for your child. In the event he or she is separated from you and brought to the Bumbershoot staff, we'll contact you immediately. This free service is also available for adults with disabilities.

Lost Kids

If your child becomes separated from you, please report it immediately to the nearest information booth, a Bumbershoot staff person with a radio, or Lost Kids HQ on the third floor for the Armory. The Bumbershoot team will help reunite you with your child as quickly as possible.
