Save the Date! The Children's Festival will be back June 1 - June 4, 2023!


Cultivating wonder and awe in our children is so important – special moments, big or small, that make them say “WHOA!” opens their eyes to all the extraordinary things around us. 

For over four decades, the International Children’s Festival of the Arts has transported kids to another world and provided them with countless awe-inspiring experiences. Through world-class programming in music, dance and theatre, as well as literary, visual and circus arts, we awaken a child’s innate sense of wonder and excitement, as we help them to explore what’s possible. 

Schools and Group Tickets 

Connect your classroom to the world through entertaining, educational and inspirational arts experiences. There is something special about the opportunity to explore what’s possible when adventure, imagination and creativity come together in one memorable place.
