The tiniest tots and their families will enjoy this massive festival of epic proportions at TOTfest Cheshire at Chester Racecourse, packed with fun and entertainment.

Taking place in July 2024 and located in the heart of Cheshire, this much-anticipated event promises a day filled with laughter, learning, and endless entertainment, where kids and their grownups get to have all sorts of festival-themed fun!

Expect interactive play and dress up and fun and games at the Tots Fairground. Kids who love to learn and create will enjoy the arts, crafts and education-themed play, including phonics with robots, story-themed theatre and gigantic art canvasses! Meet and greet with special guests, and you may also bump into dinosaurs casually roaming the grounds – so we do recommend you watch your back!

Enjoy live performances at various stages throughout the festival, where dancing and singing along is fully encouraged. Active kids will love the football fun, water play, musical bikes, tiny car racing, hoola hoops, spinning tops and tractors. Yes, the plan is to get the kids  so exhausted that they fall asleep as soon as they return home!

The littlest tots will enjoy baby racing and diddi dance, amongst other fun baby-themed activities, and to top it all off there’s a huge parade – performers to be announced. Kids who love to BOUNCE can enjoy the ever so exciting Bounceland, which is just as wonderful as its name suggests.

Everyone is bound to be feeling pretty peckish after all this fun. There will be various food and drink vendors to choose from dotted around Totfest Cheshire, selling all sorts of tasty treats! Feel free to bring a picnic if you’re watching the pennies.
