Thanks to all the #fundraisingfoamies, we’ve raised over $200,000 from this event to support Make-A-Wish. Because of your ongoing support, we can help grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses, wishes like Bennet.
Bennet is a seven year old boy who was diagnosed with cancer at a young age. Bennet loves all things outdoor so it was no surprise that he wished for his own camping trailer.
“I love camping and going on cool adventures! And it’s like a house” says Bennet. The most important part of Bennet’s wish was spending time with his family. Bennet is excited to be the Wish Kid Ambassador for the 2022 5K Foam Fest events across Ontario.

The 5k Foam Fest is implementing some changes to our event to reduce the waste we generate as we work towards a more environmentally friendly experience.
Most water based obstacles are only a few feet deep! If you feel you shouldn’t do an obstacle for any reason our staff will help you around it. All obstacles are optional!
All children must be physically, mentally, and emotionally capable to complete the course with proper course etiquette.
- 7 to 12 years must run with a Registered Adult. Parents must use proper judgement and help the youngsters decide on what obstacles to do or not based on their ability, size and confidence level. Event waiver(s) must be signed by the child’s legal guardian when registering.
- 13+ years do not require an adult chaperone, but must adhere to all course rules and regulations. Event waiver(s) must be signed by the child’s legal guardian when registering.
- 6 years and under cannot run the 5k Foam Fest, but they can join us for FREE in our Kids FUN Zone, where they can try out our mini Inflatable Obstacle Course and Bounce House (adult supervision required). Waiver(s) must be signed by the child’s legal guardian on site at the event.
Kids 7 and up who are registering to run the course are charged the same price and receive the same full experience of the 5K Foam Fest that adults do. Kids 6 and under receive FREE access to our kids zone with a registered adult. We offer family pass pricing (based on a minimum of 4 family members). The family pass is available as a ticket option when registering, no promo code is required.
Can’t swim? A little nervous about being able to complete an obstacle? No problem! Staff and volunteers are placed throughout the course. They are ready to leap into action and help you through an obstacle. Or, if you feel you shouldn’t do an obstacle for any reason our staff will help you around it. All obstacles are optional.
Yes, we have partnered nationally with Make-A-Wish Canada. We believe that Foam Fest is a great opportunity for families to help other families in need. We aim to help grant some truly inspirational wishes for children in communities across the country. To donate now or build a fundraising team click here.
We encourage people to get crazy and creative and come in just about anything. All we ask is no cleats or sharp objects since a good portion of our course is inflatables, of course, and we wouldn’t want one to go POP!
The average person takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete the course. The run itself is designed to avoid congestion on the course with a heated wave system running every 15 minutes in desirable numbers. This gives each and every participant a chance to experience The 5K Foam Fest at its best possible state!
The 5K Foam Fest is a rain or shine event. Unless we’ve contacted you to tell you otherwise, assume the event is on regardless of weather conditions. Weather conditions that would cause us to postpone or cancel: lightning, high winds, tornadoes, forest fires, earthquakes, extreme hail or snow.
We ask all participants to plan to arrive 1 hour ahead of your scheduled wave time and head to the Registration and Festival Zone. Once you’ve been checked in and assigned your bib feel free to mingle in the Festival Zone while waiting for your heat.
Bring yourself, some ID, your gear, and plan to get Foamy and muddy with a positive attitude as this is a judgment free zone so there is no need to be nervous. We can’t stress enough that this is YOUR run and we want YOU to have as much fun as possible!
A few extra things we suggest include:
- Money for parking ($10)
- A change of clothes
- A towel to dry yourself off
- Some SPF for those fair skinned beauties
- Waterproof camera/action cam to capture your funny and memorable moments
- Garbage bags for your car seats (trust us, the mud may come home with you!)
The Make-A-Wish gear check tent will be in the festival area and available by donation ($5 minimum). All proceeds will help grant wishes to children across Canada!
We cap our registration numbers at 5000 people so that we can really focus on the participant experience. We never want our participants waiting in lines and not getting the full effect that 5K Foam Fest has to offer.
Smile! Photos from the event will be edited and uploaded as soon as possible, usually within 2 days of the event. You can find them here. You can search by facial recognition (selfie upload) or by time of day/obstacle.
Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with a download link to your Registrant Information Package. We are going paperless and ask that at check in on event day you show your ticket on your phone for us to scan or we can even just look you up by name and ID. An updated waiver will be sent out to all participants closer to the event date. Please ensure you approve it ahead of time.
Our number one priority is the customer experience! We really emphasize a friendly fun-filled day that caters to each and every one of our participants!! Our pricing is affordable so that either an individual, family or group you can come out and enjoy a full day of fun with custom features, a fun atmosphere and memories to last a lifetime!
As we continuously grow and expand our locations, the demand for volunteers also increases. Please visit the registration page of the location you would like to volunteer for to find out more and to sign up under the ‘Volunteer’ tab. We really appreciate people taking the day to come out and support our events, so THANK YOU!
Once waves are filled we can no longer accept registrations. If there are still openings you are welcome to register the day of but remember it is not guaranteed that there will be open wave times. Day of registration will cost $85.00. We suggest registering early, the sooner you sign up the more money you save on registration!
I understand no refunds will be granted if the event decides to modify, postpone, change venues or cancel the Activities due to weather conditions, acts of God, or other factors beyond their control that may affect the venue, safety and/or health of the participants and/or visitors.
If you’re having trouble registering contact us at email@example.com and let us know what problems you are encountering. Our staff will be more than happy to help you out!

We serve children in every community in Canada, and in more than 50 countries worldwide. Since 1983, Make-A-Wish Canada has granted over 37,000 wishes across the country, over 1000 last year alone.
