2018 Children’s Garden Festival
Friday, June 8 – Sunday, June 17
Various shift times
Join us for our sixth annual Children’s Garden Festival! Volunteers will assist guests at the entry gate as they step into the world of Winnie the Pooh, help with games in Tigger’s Game Zone, play with kiddos at the sensory bins in Rabbit’s Garden, help kids ‘build a bear” in the 100 Acre Wood and more. It takes more than 400 volunteers to make this magical event happen, so we need your help! Weekends are particularly busy and we need a lot of extra hands to keep things running smoothly. Please consider volunteering and bringing your family, friends, or coworkers to volunteer
Winnie the Pooh Sensory Night
Friday, June 8
This event provides a more controlled and welcoming environment to experience our Children’s Garden Festival. No loud music and smaller crowds, perfect for families with children with special needs. Volunteers will assist with games, crafts, Build a Bear, sensory stations and other activities during the event.
Evening in the 100 Acre Wood
Saturday, June 16
Guests will visit Winnie the Pooh after hours to explore the Children’s Garden as the sun sets in the background. Volunteers are encouraged to dress as their favorite character to get in the spirit. Throughout the evening we will be playing The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh short stories on the Children’s Garden porch for everyone to enjoy. Volunteers will assist with games and activities.
