Philadelphia International Children’s Festival
A family-friendly theatrical extravaganza in University City
June 2-4, 2016
Celebrating more than 30 years of festival fun, the widely acclaimed Philadelphia International Children’s Festival brings professional theater created specifically for children to the Annenberg Center for Performing Arts at the University of Pennsylvania.
Performers and companies from across the globe converge in University City to share in performances that go beyond simplistic themes and cartoon-like characters.
Past years have seen productions from Canada, Britain, Japan, Belgium, China, Uganda and Italy — just to name a few — exploring issues as diverse as the Holocaust, family, love and gender equality.
Children’s Festival FUN ZONE
Held on the Outdoor Plaza, the Children’s Festival FUN ZONE features hands-on activities for the entire family. Enjoy live music, crafts, face-painting and an entire lineup of performances.
