For Kids

Kidlore: hands-on traditions and fun children’s activities
Passing on traditions is the focus of the Kidlore activities area at the MSU Museum’s Great Lakes Folk Festival, Aug. 11 & 12, in downtown East Lansing. The Kidlore area is open from noon-6:00 p.m. on August 11 & 12.

Many hands-on activities for children (and their adult companions) are inspired by the music, dance, art and culture throughout the festival site. This year kids will have the opportunity for hands-on experiences inspired by the artists and traditions of the Michigan Traditional Arts Program (MTAAP).
