Gina Mills from the Forestry Commission, said: "We're excited to be offering families the chance to create some of their own wooden wonders with our learning team."
As well as tree-based activities and crafts, there will be live music, falconry displays, storytelling, theatre and tree climbing.
Visitors will find plenty to shore them up for the day ahead with Moroccan, Spanish and Indian food stalls, the best of British grub, local ice creams and ales and a hog roast.
Entertainment comes in all forms, including the Welsh Axemen giving chainsaw demonstrations, standing block races and two-man cross saw displays.
Storyteller Michael Loader will ask children to pick an object from his jamboree story bag and tell a tale to fire the imagination based around the piece, and there will be a children's puppet show.
