Stokes Partnership for Children (SPC) will host the seventeenth annual Little Folks Festival on Saturday, April 21, 2018, at Walnut Cove Elementary School in Walnut Cove, N.C., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Little Folks Festival is a school readiness forum for young children and families, with a focus on early care and education, literacy, family support and health. County organizations, non-profits and businesses set up booths featuring their programs and services making the festival a perfect venue for community information sharing. Best of all it offers a variety of fun activities for young children, indoor/outdoor activities, free food, free books, games and prizes. There is no charge for admission. Donations are accepted.

Featured on-stage at the Little Folks Festival is Bayleigh Kristine, a seventeen year-old singer from King. Singing from the time she was little, she has carried music with her throughout her whole life and has taught herself guitar and ukulele. Kristine has had many amazing opportunities throughout her journey, such as singing on 107.5 WKZL, winning her school’s talent show, and auditioning for American Idol. She hopes to inspire others in the way that other musicians have inspired her.

The Stokes Family YMCA will also host Healthy Kids Day alongside the Little Folks Festival. Come check out this free event with tons for the kids to do! Bounce houses, face painting, Zumba and much more!

The Knights of Columbus Good Shepherd Council will provide free hot dogs and hamburgers. Kids will be able to climb aboard the big yellow school bus and visit a pre-kindergarten classroom. Door prizes will be given away and raffles will be held for a tricycle and scooter.

This event made possible by financial support from Cardinal Innovations Healthcare, Stokes County Arts Council, Tuttle’s Body Shop and Walnut Cove Lions Club.
