An annual event here in Iowa that our family loves going to is KidsFest at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Kidsfest is an annual kid-centered festival for the entire family that helps support Children and Families of Iowa.

Veridian Credit Union is the presenting sponsor of Kidsfest for the eighth year and also have a variety of activities themselves at Kidsfest to help kids learn about saving money and smart financial habits.

Kidsfest is a kid-centered festival full of fun activities, games and entertainment for kids and their families. This annual event draws over 15,000 central Iowans each year and is Children & Families of Iowa’s largest fundraiser, with the proceeds going to help at-risk families and children in Iowa. Kidsfest raised more than $155,000 in 2013. You can find more information about Kidsfest on the Children and Families website at At Veridian, we believe in the in the idea of people helping people and we feel Kidsfest is a great example of this principle.

We’ve had fun at Kidsfest and have gone several times. From face painting to games and seeing some of your favorite cartoon characters, Kidsfest is fun for the entire family.
