This month, the second annual Junior festival returns to Harbourfront Centre, inviting our kids to lead the charge in changing the world!

Bringing together leading contemporary artists from across the globe, kids and caregivers alike will experience powerful performances that explore identity, growth, belonging and transformation. This year, there will be free activities, including circus acts, visual art, dress-up, Capoeira demos, Fay & Fluffy’s Storytime, a child-led fashion show, a junior clothing swap, live concerts (including The Jerry Cans, Regent Park School of Music, and Lemon Bucket Orchestra) and a Kids Can Save The Planet documentary series. Trust us, you can easily (and happily) spend the whole weekend there.

The Toronto International Children’s Festival runs from May 18 to 24. Get full schedule here.
