With performers on multiple stages, character meet and greets, a special toddler area just for the youngest festival goers, arts and crafts, hands-on activities and exciting active adventures, there was something for everyone in the family to enjoy along The Pavilion’s unforgettable journey into the prehistoric era.  

Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live guided families on a breathtaking adventure where they observed, met and interacted with an eye-popping collection of amazingly life-like dinosaurs and other creatures presented in a theatrical performance that thrilled and entertained kids while stimulating their imaginations.  Brought to life by a team of skilled performers and puppeteers, and designed with the help of professional paleontologists, Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live’s puppets participated in an entertaining and educational live show on the Main Stage.

Guests also had the opportunity to meet Tex the T-Rex and Tiger the Raptor from Wild Dinosaurs Entertainment, explore the land of the STEAMosaurus, create their own masterpieces in the inspiring realm of the CREATEosaur, visit the magical land of the TriceraTOTS, watch student performers on the Community Stage (Watering Hole), have fun in the ADVENTURE Raptor zone, explore TyrannoTRANSIT and LAWNodon, and so much more.
