Boxerstock Kids' Village

Our Kids' Village is packed with fun things to do, including Water Walkers (Human Hamster Balls!) and awesome entertainment from some of Atlanta's best up-and-coming young performers!

Boxerstock Kids' Village is packed with tons of family friendly Fall-tastic fun! Start out with bouncing on one of the inflatables (full day wristbands available), stroll around the family vendors, then head over to our very talented face painter who will help you dream up a wonderful masterpiece, from flowers and animals to a spook-tastic spider for Halloween! Finish your look with some spectacular hair with Renee's Wacky Hair.

Of course, don’t forget to check out the “Kids” Stage for some great entertainment, useful info from K-9 Coach and super demos. Take a look at the schedule so you don’t miss out!

Returning this year, is a Kids' Art Contest, sponsored by The Art Room at The Music Studio at Vinings! Click here for Boxerstock Art Contest rules and details!

Take your sweeties over to the arena to have their pictures made with their dogs or get that perfect picture with Santa before the holiday rush. You'll have plenty of time to make that holiday card this year!

All this fun is on top of our already great family event. So check out the other schedules of bands and demos around the park and grab some great food from the food trucks. And remember, all this to benefit Atlanta Boxer Rescue!

Mary Kate Farmer

Mary Kate FarmerCountry artist Mary Kate Farmer was raised in San Antonio Texas but now calls Georgia her home. From the age of four, Mary would sing and perform for family and friends every chance she could. At 14, her parents bought her an acoustic guitar unknowingly launching her into a burgeoning music career. Mary writes, composes and performs all her own original music. Mary balances school and music and has performed at music venues, fairs and festivals throughout the South. Her debut single "My Type of Man" was featured on several radio stations across the country including 94.9 The Bull in Atlanta, as well as Germany and the United Kingdom. She recently performed for a crowd of thousands as the opening act for John King (Tonight Tonight) on the Fourth of July. Mary is heading back into the studio to complete work on her debut CD so stay tuned.

Liz Kate Slatery

Liz Kate SlateryLiz Kate has played at some of the most reputable venues in the South (The Red Clay Theater, Eddie’s Attic). No stranger to the stage, she began training in vocal and guitar technique just a few months shy of her sixth birthday. Her mother, an actor and professional dancer, realized Liz Kate’s passion for music and encouraged her to pursue songwriting as well. By age six, Liz booked her first acting role in a feature film (Love on the Rocks, Justin Welborn), then went on to appear in several award winning short films soon after also winning Best Child Actor in 2010 for a short film (Things Past). While training under Sarah Peacock for voice, she was introduced to Vanessa Olivarez (Mama’s Blue Dress, Granville Automatic, American Idol). Vanessa and Liz developed a strong bond and through her coaching, it took Liz Kate’s music and songwriting to new heights. Liz has trained under many reputable guitar coaches in the Atlanta area (Matthew Chenoweth - Harvard Music Graduate, The Goldest, and Jerry Farr - Willie Nelson, Alabama). Continuing her growth, she now studies at the world renowned Jan Smith Studios under accomplished guitarist/musician Peter Vogl. In 2013 she collaborated with musicians Kendra Morris and Julia Haltigan to write her song “Master of Disguise”. Through her new friendship with Kendra and Julia, she was introduced to Marshall Ruffin when Julia asked Liz to do a duet of her song “Goodbye Cowboys and Rocketmen” with her at Eddie’s Attic. Liz Kate continues to work with the three of them individually and frequently is asked to sit in and play shows when they are in Atlanta.

Liz Kate is loosely based between Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles and South Florida, but currently calls Atlanta home.
