Our 2021 Festival will feature dazzling performances from artists far and wide. From local treasures to international gems, these captivating performers will put a smile on your child’s face and make you hoot with laughter.
Like with most things these days, the Festival will look a little bit different this year.
From May 31 to June 13, families can experience the Festival online from the comfort of home. The reimagined 2021 Festival will offer a mix of Live Online and Pre-recorded Online performances with an extra 7 days of extended show viewing.
With current provincial health orders restricting events and for the safety of patrons, the Festival will not be selling In-person performance tickets at this time. Should BC Public Health Authorities lift restrictions, the Festival will release a limited number of tickets for In-person shows that will take place in venues on Granville Island. The Festival will monitor communications from the provincial health office and make an announcement regarding In-person tickets by the end of April. Tentative In-person schedule.
We are also happy to announce that the Festival will be offering pay-what-you-can pricing this year. We know parenting can be challenging on a good day and because of the pandemic, life has gotten a lot more stressful. We’re here to help.
Now more than ever, there is an incredible need to experience the joy of the arts! It’s a chance to forget your worries for a moment and focus on what’s important in life, to dance, to be silly and to connect with your kids. We are committed to supporting you. This year, by offering pay-what-you-can pricing the Festival will be accessible and affordable to all families no matter their current circumstances.
