The Children’s Festival at Historic Smithville

Historic Smithville hosts a Children’s event every Spring. It is a day full of family fun and activities for all ages! We are excited to announce that the Cape May Zoo will be at the Village presenting live animals as well as the AC aquarium.

This year the Children’s Festival will take place on May 13, 2017.
