Kids Fitness Festival of The Palm Beaches presented by Baptist Health returns to South Florida Fairgrounds this week

The Kids Fitness Festival of The Palm Beaches presented by Baptist Health will take place on Wednesday, July 10, at the South Florida Fairgrounds. Celebrating its 21st year, the Kids Fitness Festival of The Palm Beaches encourages our county’s children to participate in sports while embracing fitness and healthy lifestyles. The Palm Beach County Sports Commission organizes this festival of sports annually to develop and promote the positive aspects of sports participation, which can provide positive impacts throughout a lifetime.

Elementary and middle school children, ages 5 to 12, will participate in interactive clinics to learn the fundamentals for a variety of sports. Over 1,600 children are registered and will experience more than 20 different sports. The interactive sports clinics are produced by local and national sports organizations. After playing the many sports offered at this event, the participating children receive information to take home, which provided instructions on how they can pursue the different sports that were featured at the Kids Fitness Festival.

The South Florida Fairgrounds is the Kids Fitness Festival’s venue for the second consecutive year. The South Florida Fairgrounds has been a frequent site for this event over the last two decades and was home to the inaugural Kids Fitness Festival of The Palm Beaches during the summer of 2003.

Feature sports for the 2024 Kids Fitness Festival include basketball, golf, soccer, baseball, lacrosse, judo, football, flag football, BMX, cricket, croquet, tennis, beach tennis, pickleball, hockey, cornhole, endurance training, and a variety of fun and games.
