At the Base Theater just inside the front gate.
Activities this year: Airfield train ride, clowns and magicians, face painting, f-16 cockpit, cotton candy and popcorn, aircraft static display, dance performances, drawing contest, children’s choir, inflatable toys and slides, ballet and tae kwon do shows, dog show, food ,drinks and desserts, and much more.
The International Children’s Festival is a wonderful event put on each year by the Turkish NSU at the Geilenkirchen Air Base. There is always a lot of free food – the normal carnival stuff… hamburgers and hotdogs, cotton candy and popcorn. The kids will enjoy the big inflatable slides and trampolines, face painting, and other activities. Inside the theater there are dance performances by many local groups. Outside afterwards, there is a beautiful display of Turkish folk dancing. The costumes are phenomenal. This is always the highlight for us.
