Does your child love to make people laugh? Young comedians are encouraged to gather their favorite jokes and take the mic. What ensues makes this one of the most entertaining events during the festival! Kids all over West Michigan have submitted their favorite jokes and we can’t wait to share them.

This years Kids Joke Time will be a virtual showcase consisting of pre-recorded clips of children performing from the comfort of their own homes.


We want to feature your amazing jokes in this year’s special virtual showcase!

We’ll be accepting submissions Monday, February 22 – Monday, March 8 at 5 p.m.

Interested? Great! Parents, here is what we need:

  • Submission of your child’s clip via this UPLOAD LINK
  • Video Requirements
    • Horizontally filmed
    • Your child telling their joke
    • Child between the ages of 1 year to 12 years old
    • We’ll want to contact you if your video will be streamed, so make sure to include your kid’s first and last name, age, and your email address in the file name! Like this: First Name_Last Name_Age_contact Email.mp4
