The Children’s Festival is going VIRTUAL! Due to the effects of COVID-19, this in-person event has been transformed into a one-of-a-kind online event that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Create your own paper flower event decor with members of our production team, enjoy a quick storytelling activity led by our education team and enjoy Thumbelina Kamishibai (a form of Japanese storytelling) created by award-winning director and playwright, Natsu Onoda Power. The fun doesn’t stop there! Go on a scavenger hunt with Kids Move and Learn, try some taekwondo moves with Team Yoo Taekwondo, and decorate flower and sunshine cookies with The Red Bandana Bakery. A dance party and raffle will round out the special occasion. So throw on your best garden party attire and join us for this larger than life event!
We hope you will consider supporting our mission during these unprecedented times with a suggested donation of $25. No donation is required but advance RSVP is recommended.
