Activities

Back by Popular Demand

This year, we're working hard to bring in more activities for your entire family than ever before! Here's what awaits you when you come to the 2017 Vail Fest.

Our $5 wristband: For only $5 you get unlimited enjoyment on these rides. This flat rate covers you for the entire day. Jump, climb and ride as much as you'd like!

Four Jumping Castles

Kids of all ages will love bouncing around in the four jumping castles at the fair this year!

There will be a classic jumping castle, a 22 foot dual lane, a 15 x 15 vertical with slide, and a 40 foot obstacle course for kids of all ages to enjoy.

Rock Climbing Wall

Want to feel the rush of climbing high above the rooftop of Thurber Hall? Take your turn scaling the rock climbing wall and enjoy the adrenaline filled pride when you reach the top.

Kid's Ferris Wheel and New Ride: Gyro

What's more iconic of a fair than a ferris wheel? This year, the kid's ferris wheel is making a comeback and this time, the rides are included with your wristband. Give your kiddos the experience of a trip around the ferris wheel while they stay safely secured and close enough to the ground to enjoy the journey.  Also check out our new ride, Gyro.

First Responders

This year, we will have more first responders on site interacting with the community and letting kids get up close and personal with their gear and equipment. Check out the Rincon Valley Fire District fire trucks. If you haven't gotten your children fingerprinted yet, stop by the Pima County Sheriff's booth to do it at the fair! Kids will walk away with some fun coloring books and toys to play with after the fair too.
