Sure, there’s lots of fun for adults at Spokatopia. But kids have it made with free outdoors fun all day long! Kids 12 and under get a FREE activity pass when they show up with their parents (liability waiver required). Check out everything kids can do at Spokatopia!

Climbing Wall

Adults and kids can rope up and climb the WA Army National Guard climbing wall.

Kids Bike Demos

This year’s kids’ bike area will take place at the pump track a short walk to the east of the main festival meadow. Little ones not quite ready to pedal can cruise around on Strider bikes, built to teach them to hone their balance (Strider bikes courtesy of Paul Fish and Mountain Gear). We will also have a few kids mountain bikes from Prevelo and Trek on hand for demo. All bikes and loaner helmets will be sanitized after each use.

Slacklining

Kids love to test their balance on a slackline of tight webbing set up between two anchors just off the ground. We will have a local slacklining expert on hand to help and a large rain tarp set up to keep the slacklining area dry. Find the slacklining area behind the music stage in the meadow.

Yard Games

Hang out and play several yard game options near the adult beverage garden.

Spokatopia Campground

Kids and adults can relax on hammocks, in camp chairs, or in a giant tent to read books, relax, or play. Look for the campground in the main festival meadow that will include some large tents to get out of the weather.

MTB Jump Show

Kids will love watching skilled mountain bikers fly through the air off of massive jumps. Practice starts at 12:30 and the show runs from 1-1:45 p.m. in the jump park a few minutes walk to the east of the main festival meadow. Heavy rain may cancel this event.

Kids Presentations

Bring the kids for one of several FREE presentations by award-winning author Joseph Drumheller under the covered area/tent in the “Campground” in the Spokatopia meadow. In case of rain, there will be tents/covered areas to keep kids out of the rain during the presentation.
