For over four decades, the International Children's Festival of the Arts has transported kids to other worlds and provided them with countless awe-inspiring and mind-growing experiences. Over the years, the Festival has nurtured, inspired and ignited creative expression for hundreds of thousands of young, global citizens, and worked diligently to promote a higher degree of cultural understanding. At the Festival, children will tap into the power of imaginative thinking as they sing and dance to world music, interact with roving artists, listen to stories of others' experiences in faraway places, and create their own masterpiece with the help of a variety of hands-on activities. 

-Andrea Gammon, Festival Coordinator
