At the annual Children’s Festival, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is transformed into a giant playground filled with live music, a train ride, kite flying, hat-making, face-painting and much more. Sound like fun? Well, consider volunteering at the Festival through your company or community service organization.

Community service organizations can include groups from Junior League, Junior Forum, High School clubs, church groups, girl and boy scouts just to name a few. In the past, The Woodlands College Park High School Interact, Arts Society and DECA clubs, The Woodlands High School Spanish Club, Klein High School National Honor Society, Junior League of North Harris and Montgomery Counties, Cypress-Woodlands Junior Forum, The Woodlands Christian Academy, and many more have volunteered at the Festival.

The Pavilion relies on many volunteers to make its events successful. Children’s Festival is one of The Pavilion’s staple events and is essential in ensuring The Pavilion’s mission of providing educational programs to the community is met. It takes approximately 450 volunteers to produce the event.

Children’s Festival is a four-day event with school days Thursday and Friday, Nov. 7 and 8, and weekend days Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 9 and 10. It is non-stop fun and excitement around every corner. There are a variety of jobs and one to suit each volunteer.

On school days, volunteer duties include escorting nearly 4,000 students and teachers each day from their buses to their seats and then back to their buses after the event. All volunteers are provided breakfast and lunch.

On the weekend, volunteers help in different areas of the festival including face-painting and hat-making booths, arts and crafts, parachute races, kite flying on the hill and more. On the weekend, volunteers are treated to the volunteer hospitality area for a light snack and cold drink.

Come join the fun and help support your community at the 18th Annual Children’s Festival. If your company or group is interested in volunteering at the Festival, please contact Leslie Williams at or 281-210-1125 or sign up online at
