Event description


We are sorry to announce that Kidchella 2019 has been canceled.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. We know the kiddos were looking forward to a fun day. We want to make sure we provide a top notch experience for all attendees, and due to changes at the production company it was best to cancel the event this year.

We are issuing full refunds to all ticket buyers - you will receive an email from Eventbrite confirming the processing of your refund.

We hope to bring Kidchella back in 2020 - so stay tuned for that announcement!

Caspar Babypants

Caspar Babypants is also known as Chris Ballew, twice Grammy nominated lead singer and songwriter for the Seattle band The Presidents of the United States of America. A few years ago Chris rediscovered turn of the century folk and traditional music and focused on a more simple approach that gave birth to Caspar Babypants. His wife Kate Endle is a huge influence toward his transformation and writing style for kids and does all the cover art for the albums. Chris says, "I want to make music for the very young because I admire their associative inventive imaginations and as an adult I nurture that same creativity in myself."

The Not-Its!

For more than nine years now, The Not-Its! have rocked kids and families with their up-tempo albums and live concerts that give children their first "rock show" experience. With the release of their seventh studio album, Ready Or Not, this Seattle "Kindie Rock" quintet will have children and their parents on their feet screaming for more, the moment they hit the dance floor!

They are Sarah Shannon (former singer Sub Pop band Velocity Girl), Danny Adamson (rhythm guitar), Tom Baisden (lead guitar), Jennie Helman (bass player) and Michael Welke (former drummer of Harvey Danger). As parents, they add 10 children to the crowd, ranging in ages 7-15. Since 2008 they have been poised to keep their families and yours dancing along at their live shows as well as to their recorded albums, and with their much anticipated seventh album, Ready Or Not, it is clear they have no intention of slowing down!
