Kidsfest (Calgary International Children’s Festival)  May 24-27, 2017 at Arts Commons and Olympic Plaza.

Live performances take us on exciting journeys that motivate, inspire creativity, and celebrate diversity. In 2017, we’ve programmed a collection of shows – including the empowering kid-hop artist Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, the intergalactic adventure Moon Mouse: A Space Odyssey, and an adaptation of the Snow Queen (Frozen) fairy tale, A Heart in Winter – to take kids on journeys of discovery and enriching entertainment.

Their Story:

The Calgary International Children’s Festival (Kidsfest) celebrates its 31st anniversary this season. Kidsfest began in 1987 and has grown to become one of the most prominent arts festivals of its kind in Canada and the largest presenter of performing arts for young people in Calgary.

As a vital contributor to the cultural landscape of our community, Kidsfest offers children, parents, and teachers an experiential and educational environment for imagination, growth, and creative expression.

Along with the support of our fantastic audience, Kidsfest has been gifted with the support of government, corporate, and personal donations recognizing the importance of arts exposure for young minds. We also benefit from the support of over 500 generous volunteers each year.

With an over 30-year legacy, Kidsfest has started to reach its next generation of patrons. It’s exciting to see adults who had their first exposure to performing arts through the Calgary International Children’s Festival share that same magic with their children today.
