The International Children's Festival

May 27 to May 28
Calgary, Alberta (AB)


One of North America’s largest performing arts festivals specifically geared for children, but appealing to adults as well, the 5-day-long Calgary International Children’s Festival presents critically acclaimed professional live theatre, music and dance for younger audiences.







Held at the Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts, in the heart of Calgary’s city centre, the appealing selection of performing arts, for adults as much as children, features acts from all over the world, including Brazil, West Africa, Scotland, Belgium, USA and Canada.

Ever since it began in 1987, the Calgary International Children’s Festival has grown to become the second largest performing arts festival of its kind in Canada and the third largest festival of its kind in North America.

Today the festival has a staff of over 200 performing artists, administrative staff, technicians and theatre venue personnel as well as over 600 volunteers who support the festival each year.

The Calgary International Children’s Festival attracts more than 50,000 visitors each year.

The appealing selection of performing arts, for adults as much as children, features acts from all over the world, including Brazil, West Africa, Scotland, Belgium, USA and Canada – just a few of the 60 countries who have showcased their music, theatre and dance since the festival began in 1987.
