One of a Kind is a series of stories performed by a talented, diverse group of extraordinary emerging storytellers. Each performer shares a one-of-a-kind tale from their childhood, filled with truths, cultural perspectives, challenges, laughs and adventures all accompanied by physical theatre, music and movement.
Our 2023 children’s 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.
As a non-profit organization, Vancouver International Children’s Festival uses private funding to subsidize ticket prices and ensure accessibility to our cultural programming for all children regardless of social or economic circumstance.
We invite you to join us in celebrating #GivingTuesday by making your tax-deductible donation to the Vancouver International Children’s Festival Society’s Good Neighbours Program.
