VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL CHILDRENS FESTIVAL
May 27th to June 2nd, 2024
Thank you to everyone who came down and enjoyed the In-Person Festival this year. And thank you to all of our amazing artists, crew, volunteers, staff, sponsors & supporters of all kinds. We couldn’t have done it without you! Sign up to receive Festival updates and new show information for 2024.
We have over 46 years of experience finding the best international performing artists and shows for children. Take a look at the super shows we’ve specially selected for this year’s Festival.
It’s back! Join us for an exciting evening of good times, fun and trivia! Grab a team of 4 together and join us for Trivia Night, a fundraising event on Saturday, Nov. 4th, to raise funds for our Adopt a Class Program.
Our diverse programming is an opportunity for students to gain new perspectives and experiences from which they can learn. Kids can see, hear, feel, think and imagine a better tomorrow.
Inspired by Harold and The Purple Crayon, ZOOOM uses original music, lasers and projections, to take the audience on an immersive shared journey. Kids (and parents) will love this playful, interactive show where light is used to solve problems and build worlds.
Our 2024 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.
