You know that anything named “The Children’s Festival” has got to be good.
And this event, put on by the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts from May 18th – 20th, will not disappoint the under (and really, over) 12 set.
The Annenberg Center’s core mission is to connect people to the arts, and for this annual event, it pulls out all the stops to bring amazing artistic performances to Philly kids. There’s a full roster of shows running throughout the three days, including a Latin Grammy-award winning singer/guitar player, a Frozen sing-along, a circus-arts performance (a funny one!), and a Peter Rabbit play, to name a few.
But wait, there’s more! Outside of the Center is PlazaMania, a free (!) all-day party, with pop-up performances, art activities, balloon animals, and more.
Tickets for each performance range from $5-$14, but the smartest thing to do is to get the Festival Pass for Saturday, May 20th, which gets you into three shows and the buzzing outdoor plaza.
There’s a whole bunch of great information about The Children’s Festival here, including details about each performance and links to purchase tickets.
