For 44 years, the Vancouver International Children’s Festival has inspired and motivated young audiences with professional artistic experiences that transform a child’s understanding of the world around them and what is creatively possible.  Offering world-class Canadian and International professional performances combined with numerous hands-on cultural activities, the Festival provides a valuable cultural experience for the children, parents and teachers who attend each year.

As a non-profit organization, we use private funding to subsidize ticket prices and ensure accessibility to our cultural programming for all children regardless of social or economic circumstance.

Our Good Neighbours Program connects donors with families who do not have the means to attend the festival and provides them with featured performance tickets and all-day access to our hands-on arts activities.


Our Adopt a Class Program provides featured performance tickets, return bus transportation and all-day access to our Activity Village for school groups from enhanced support schools across Metro Vancouver that would otherwise be unable to attend the Festival.


Our Hospital Outreach Program helps children who are unable to leave their facilities share in the Festival spirit with their families and benefit from the healing power of music and laughter by bringing featured artists and costumed characters to the hospitals.

Vancouver International Children’s Festival is a registered charity and can issue charitable tax receipts for donations over $20.00.
