As a family-owned company, KPC Media Group engages area youth in free opportunities for learning and creativity. Since 2004, KidCity has seen more than 6,000 children and their families take part in the free interactive learning fair, which continues to grow each year. KPC is proud to help sponsor KidCity annually.
On the first Saturday in August, KidCity takes over the Noble County Community Fairgrounds in Kendallville and serves as a place to educate and inspire youth from all over Northeast Indiana. The event is staged in a pseudo-city made up of five neighborhoods: Community, Communications and Literacy, Health and Fitness, Arts and Culture and Environment and Science. Each neighborhood is filled with fun, tangible learning experiences for tots through middle-school kids and their families.
KidCity is open to businesses, organizations, clubs, churches and service groups that want to connect with youth, families and future leaders. It is an opportunity to reach thousands of individuals in one day. Each booth provides an interactive activity for kids and an opportunity for the organization to showcase what they do.
Past activities have included painting houses, fire trucks, radio broadcasts, farm animals, building projects, art projects, dancing, singing and more. Many children look forward to annual favorites such as Weible Paint’s fence-painting event, Kairos Carpenters’ wood crafts, the East Noble Show Choir, Dekko’s before 5 activities, the Kendallville water department and the Farm Bureau animals. Participating individuals and organizations are free to be as creative and innovative as they like to showcase what they do for children attending the event.
Major sponsors of KidCity include REMC, the Dekko Foundation, KPC Media Group and the Noble County Community Foundation.
