The Kids Corner Music Festival
The Kids Corner Music Festival
Since its debut in March 2011 the Kids Corner Music Festival series has entertained over 3,000 smiling faces! With events in Philadelphia, Wilmington and Central Pennsylvania, the Kids Corner Music Festival series continues to showcase the newest sounds heard nightly on Kids Corner. Our mission is to present quality music that the entire family will enjoy, in an environment that celebrates family fun.

The Next Kids Corner Music Festival
Hosted by Kathy O'Connell and featuring performances from
The Not-Its! (11am)
Big Bang Boom! (Noon)

We are excited to kick off our 25th year of Kids Corner at our next Kids Corner Music Festival. We return to the wonderful Union Transfer located at 10th and Spring Garden Streets in Philadelphia for a great morning of music and fun. Joining us for the first time are two incredible bands from two different corners of the United States: one from the Northwest and one from the Southeast!

The Festival starts with Seattle Washington's THE NOT-ITS! at 11am, followed by a Noon performance from BIG BANG BOOM! of Greensboro, North Carolina. As with all of our Kids Music Festival Event - The Balloon Man will be there (a few of them!) offering FREE balloon creations for everyone, plus food/drink will be sold on site to keep everyone happy.

Plus FREE Balloon Twists!
What has become a staple at all of the Kids Corner Music Festival events, we will once again offer FREE balloon twist creations, courtesy of Kids Corner and WXPN-FM. Jack the Balloon Man has been performing his craft for over 20 years. Not content to make just "swords and hats," they use a multitude of balloons to create detailed works of art. The results are unique and amazing cartoon character parodies, a zoo of animals, and many interesting games and toys. Ever the showman, Jack and his friends keep our festival audiences entertained time and time again!

Yes, We Have Nibbles!
Along with great music we will have some uniquely-local food vendors offering edible items to keep your engines running! Joining us once again is Vernalicious, complete with a selection of grilled cheese melts, kosher hot dogs and mouth-watering veggie sandwiches. Alongside her you'll find one of Philly's newest indie food trucks - Guerrilla Ultima - serving up handmade burgers and tasty fries. Also at our Festival will be Cookie Confidential with their not-so-secret selection of homemade cookies and push-pop cupcakes. Plus Union Transfer's full bar featuring water, juices, soda and adult beverages will be available for purchase throughout the event.

Tickets are just $8 each for XPN Members, $12 each for non-members.
Big Bang Boom!
Big Bang Boom! - a pop/rock music group from North Carolina that plays parent-friendly music for kids. Big Bang Boom! is kid’s music with a pop sensibility, aimed at being something that parents can enjoy and feel good about letting their kids listen to and see live. Speaking of, a Big Bang Boom! live show is always high-energy and demands the crowd (the kids AND parents) get involved - be ready to dance!
The Not-Its!
The Not-Its! - considered America's best dressed and most rockin' kindie band, The Not-Its! give kids an epic rock show experience. Their high-energy performances make the entire family want to dance along to their contagious sound: crunchy, rockin' guitars combined with smooth, four-part harmonies. It's all nestled within perfectly crafted pop gems that just happen to be about every-day kid stuff. Come experience The Not-Its!
