Poster Design for Children's Festival

Advertising a children's festival with lively, bold-coloured poster designs will attract many people to come out and enjoy their day with the festivities, attractions, bazaar and foods. A children's festival is an event that is coordinated by, with and for children. Many children like colours, shapes, large photos, bubbles, balloons and all things fun, so incorporate these elements into your poster design.

Bold Colors

Bold colours can be seen from far away and are very exciting to look at for children and adults. Do not be afraid to use bold colours in your poster design to make the event feel lively and full of fun. Dull or soft colours will not make the same "get up and have fun" statement as would deep, bold and bright colours.

Large, Fun Fonts

Display the name of the children's festival with huge letters in a fun children's font such as Second Grader or Comic Sans MS. Children's fonts add a lot more character to the style of the words than many standard fonts such as Times New Roman or Arial.

Center the title of the children's festival in the middle of the poster and set it across the top or to one side of the poster. Make the title very large. Add a list of the day's highlights beneath the title using a slightly smaller sized font. Add a touch of contrast and interest by changing the font type and the font colour of the other information on the poster.


Use images from a previous children's festival or take pictures at a nearby amusement park, zoo, playground or fun centre--places that will have some of the features of your children's festival. Edit these pictures by cropping the images; adjusting the contrast, brightness and other filters; and giving the pictures borders or softened edges to blend in with the rest of the poster design.


Accent the colours, fonts and images of your poster with amusing graphics. Give the graphics dimension by adding shadows or making them three dimensional. Balloons, splashing water, bubbles, rainbows, cars, flowers, stripes, swirls, polka dots and confetti are some fun graphics to add to your poster design.


If you are making several posters for your children's event, consider making each one different but similar. Use the same colour schemes, fonts and graphics but sort them differently on each poster. One poster may have the event title displayed across the top, and the others may have the words along one side or centred at the middle of the poster. Move the images and graphics around to create different designs until you find one you really love.
