Creatively Playful Fun at the Vancouver International Children’s Festival

From May 28 to June 3, world-class theatre, music, and puppetry storytelling will entertain Vancouver children and families at The 41st Annual Vancouver International Children’s Festival on Granville Island. This year, thirteen professional performing artists are scheduled to perform 92 shows in six of Granville Island’s indoor theatre venues.

Highlights of this year’s Festival include 2018 Juno Award Nominee Splash’N Boots, a dynamic duo that will have the whole family singing, dancing and laughing. Other highlights include New Owner, an epic adventure story that blends live performance, puppetry and animation and Baking Time, a real life baking show that will delight both the eyes and the stomach. There truly is something for everyone.

This year, a new addition to the lineup includes a Relaxed Performance of the show Poggle.  This specially designed and adapted performance is for audience members who benefit from a more relaxed performance experience, including children on the autism spectrum or with sensory and communication disorders.

In addition to the many incredible shows being presented, the Festival’s Activity Village make it easy for the whole family to be creatively playful together. With over 20 arts activities, there are many ways to engage your imagination and enhance your creativity all while having fun together as a family.  Each performance pass includes an Activity Village wristband.
