Vancouver International Children’s Festival is the kind of event that makes you want to be a kid again, or latch onto a friend with kids so you can get involved in the magic. The 36th edition of the world-renowned performing arts extravaganza takes place May 27-June 2 2013 on Granville Island.
What’s so special about Vancouver International Children’s Festival? The best performing artists for children come from countries far and wide, including Norway, Africa, Germany and our very own Canada, to put on 12 shows at indoor and outdoor venues throughout Granville Island. In addition to the performances, there are 15+ hands-on activities for families. Options range from shadow puppetry, bicycle spin art and circus skills to a massive outdoor weaving project, a twist-and-toddle play area and more. The overwhelming interactivity can make Disney World seem inadequate.
Every year, Vancouver International Children’s Festival draws some 30,000 parents and children to Vancouver Island. Find out about the 2013 festival highlights and how to get tickets after the jump. Continue reading:
