Ways to Get Involved

Every Ticket Counts

Every time you buy a ticket you personally help a child battling cancer get the treatment they need, the awareness that they deserve, and the childhood that they wish for. With every ticket sold -- proceeds benefit Children’s Hospital Pediatric Center. The goal of Big Fun Kids Fest is to celebrate the beauty of being a child and having fun, a right all children should have. BFKF raises funds and awareness for children denied that right because of a Pediatric Cancer diagnosis.
