MAY 23-26, 2018

Each year in May, more than 60,000 people flock to Arts Commons and Olympic Plaza for the largest celebration of theatre for young audiences in our city. From the free outdoor stage performances, to a host of interactive activities, and award-winning theatre from close to home and around the globe, Calgary International Children’s Festival has something for everyone!

This year, we mark our 31st anniversary, and we can’t wait to welcome you with magicians, jugglers, musicians, and acrobats – and that’s just the beginning!

The Festival is yours to discover.  Mark your calendars for May 23-26, 2018.  See you there!
