You don’t have to cross the pond to introduce your kids to European art and culture. Thanks to the European Union Delegation, European-American Cultural Foundation, 28 EU embassies, and more than 30 major cultural institutions, Europe is coming to us via the Kids Euro Festival, a virtual passport to two weeks of continental artistic adventures right here in DC!
Kicking off this Saturday, October 21, and running through November 5, the 10th Annual Festival will present more than 80 FREE children’s performances and adventures all around the DC-Metro area. Concerts, workshops, movies, storytelling, puppetry, dance, magic, and cinema are all among the offerings. And museums, public libraries, movie theaters, EU embassies, arts and cultural organizations, the Kennedy Center, and other local theatres are some of the many performance venues.
The festival, designed for children ages 2-12, is the largest of its kind in the U.S. Most countries in the European Union are represented in shows and workshops that highlight national cultural traditions and art.
