Kicking off the festivities on July 7 and 8 is “Storybook Science,” an enchanting event that draws inspiration from beloved stories. Immerse yourself in a world of magic and wonder as you play with faux-poisonous apples, engineer magical castles, and create your very own wand.

On July 14 and 15, get ready for “Things That Go,” a thrilling exploration of all things that move. From planes and trains to classic cars and bikes, KidsQuest will be transformed into a hub of excitement. Families will have the opportunity to sit in classic cars, engage in Wheely Cool Painting to create artistic masterpieces, and even launch rockets high into the sky. Plus, be sure to say hello to the Bellevue Police Department, who will be making a special appearance at the event.
Prepare for a wild adventure with “Animal Adventures” on July 21 and 22. KidsQuest invites you to learn about fascinating creatures from the animal kingdom.

This event is bound to be an educational and entertaining experience for children and adults alike.
