Trainfest 2016 (GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED)

Calling all train lovers, hobbyists, little AND big kids — Trainfest is coming to Milwaukee this November! From November 12th through 13th, 2016, take your family to Wisconsin State Fair Park for a weekend of fun at “America’s Largest Operating Model Railroad Show”.

Thank you to Trainfest for partnering with Washington County Busy Kids to provide a 4 pack of tickets (2 adult, 2 children) to one lucky WC Busy Kids reader.

Train rides at Trainfest

Indoor train rides for everyone!

What can you expect?

SO many trains!! With 230,000 sq. ft. (nearly five football fields) of exhibit space featuring more than 70 highly creative scenic railroads, it’s a sight to behold. There is a constant hum of enthusiasm that travels throughout the show. The imagination of a kid (or a kid-at-heart) is present in each of the layouts on exhibit. It’s amazing what modelers can do to transform Styrofoam and plastic into beautiful countrysides.

There will also be a Kids’ Activity Zone that is full of exciting train fun! The Milwaukee Light Engineering Society will set up their mini trains for a fun ride the whole family can enjoy. Visitors will also find a Make ‘n Take Clinic, a kids entertainment stage and more! It’s a place specially designed for kids 2-14. (For a listing of all of the kid’s activities, click here.)

Interested in starting model railroading? There will also be demos! You can watch the experts or take part in a clinic. Many are adult-specific, but some are for kids, too!
