Kidsfest is an annual event in which students can receive free backpacks with school supplies. Also available at the event are dozens of community booths, some passing out more school supplies and others offering services such as immunizations or special demonstrations. This event is family friendly, with tons of entertainment for all to enjoy. 

Parents must be accompanied by children to pick up school supplies. One bag per school-age child.

Kidsfest is Saturday, August 6, from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. in the Amarillo Civic Center at 401 S. Buchanan. For updated information throughout the summer, please visit
