Born from the creator of Kidzapalooza, the inaugural Recess Family Music Festival is also the first collaboration between Recess creator Tor Hyams and Palace Sports & Entertainment.
“Music is the most powerful language in the world and we want children and their families to enjoy and explore that at the Recess Festival,” said Hyams, co-founder of Kidzapalooza and producer of The Kiddie Limits stage for Austin City Limits. “There’s integrity to music that helps children discover themselves.”
The festival is designed to actively engage the imaginations of children, ranging in age from 4-9, and their parents where families can visit various creative spaces on the Meadow Brook grounds to write and record a song, take a dance class, do arts and crafts or get a “rock star” makeover.
“There are lots of music festivals out there and children love music, so we are pleased to present a dedicated music festival for kids and their families,” said Adam Schneider, Palace Sports & Entertainment senior vice president for Events and Booking.
