Kids are wel­come at this year’s Arbor Aid and Pittsburgh’s first ever Paw­paw Fest Sat­ur­day, Sep­tem­ber 23 at Car­rie Fur­naces! Arbor Aid and Paw­paw Fest is a fam­i­ly-friend­ly, all day music fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing trees, music, and the paw­paw. We’ll have plen­ty of activ­i­ties to keep kids and fam­i­lies engaged all day long.

All chil­dren activ­i­ties appeal to a vari­ety of ages and activ­i­ty lev­els. Relax and gath­er around for one of our mul­ti­ple sto­ry times fea­tur­ing an appear­ance from Tree Pittsburgh’s new mas­cot, Oak­lee the Squir­rel! Vis­it the Kid Zone for paw­paw tast­ings and to learn more about America’s largest native edi­ble fruit. Kids can even design their own paw­paw pet rock and par­tic­i­pate in paw­paw-themed games like paw­paw bean­bag toss.

The Kid Zone will fea­ture oth­er crafts and activ­i­ties includ­ing leaf art rub­bings, build­ing a bug box or rain gauge, and more. Be sure to stop by the ALCOSAN fam­i­ly tent and oth­er ven­dors for more fam­i­ly-friend­ly activities.

There will be more than one type of kid at Arbor Aid and Paw­paw Fest…goats from Alleghe­ny GoatScape will be there! Get it? Kids? Okay, sor­ry about that pun. But real­ly, chil­dren and adults will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pet the goats and learn more about how these graz­ers reduce inva­sive and unwant­ed vegetation.

After a long day of danc­ing and activ­i­ties, your lit­tle ones will be sure to work up an appetite! A vari­ety of food and drinks such as paw­paw ice cream and paw­paw pop­si­cles are avail­able to purchase.
