Calgary International Children's Festival

Calgary International Children's Festival

Late May, during the week following Victoria Day
Children, parents, and teachers are entertained and educated every year at the Calgary International Children's Festival. This five-day event takes place in downtown Calgary, located in the Canadian province of Alberta. The festival features storytelling, dance, music, puppetry, and physical comedy, all catering to a young audience. The performances take place in and around the EPCOR CENTRE, located in the Olympic Plaza Cultural District.
The program of the festival, which was launched in 1989, reflects the organizers' emphasis on creativity and cultural sensitivity. Teacher guides are provided to instructors looking to ensure an educational experience for students. A large corps of volunteers helps run the event, and through the financial contributions of donors and sponsors, an outreach program has been established to provide free admission to economically disadvantaged children.
