FitKids Fest

This project was sparked by the increasing prevalence of childhood obesity. This is a one-day event held to encourage healthy lifestyles for children in our community. The committee works with local agencies to encourage healthy eating and exercise. Last year we welcomed approximately 750 attendees who learned how to live a more active, healthy life.


Junior League of Savannah’s Fit Kids Fest Mission Statement: Promote fit minds and bodies in K-12 children through interactive education and healthy lifestyle resources for a free annual community event.

Fit Kids Fest is a free community event focused on promoting overall wellness for K-12 students. Children and their parents can participate in a fun interactive day that not only introduces them to academic resources in the community but also educates them on making healthy choices and living an active lifestyle. Tips on making healthy meals and snacks, exercise and other fun ways to get moving, as well as access to resources for strengthening the mind are just a few of the activities available at Fit Kids Fest.

Unfortunately, due to COVID concerns, Fit Kids Fest will not be held in 2021. Please check back in spring 2022 for next year’s details!
