Bringing Children to the Festival

Kids enjoying the 2018 Portugal Spirit Festival

There's always space for your kids at the Portugal Spirit Festival! We have a dedicated children's area where you can leave your little ones in the hands of our able volunteers. Activities for children include yoga, colouring, face painting and crafts. Located inside the Festival Grounds, the Kids Zone is a safe space designed especially to entertain children.

"We want to ensure that children can have their own space and feel like they are a part of the Festival..." Filipa Maria, Kids Zone coordinator adds, "and in this way the moms and dads can peacefully practice yoga without having to worry about their kids."

The Portugal Spirit Festival is a space for families. However, one of the greatest challenges is to keep the yoga and meditation spaces freed of any noise and distractions. Having a dedicated Kids Zone keeps the grounds peaceful. Not to worry though, there are many workshops open to all ages and these are marked on the Festival schedule.
