ABOUT US:

The Children's Festival Society of Kelowna has been presenting the Fat Cat Children's Festival since 1990. 2020 celebrates our 30th year! Every spring we program events catering to the youth in our  community by presenting a range of artistic performances (dance, theatre, circus, literary workshops, and rich cultural experiences) and offering an exciting array of curriculum building workshops. This event wouldn't be possible without our amazing and supportive community of professional artists, cultural groups, local businesses, and community organizations.  The Society's mission is to ignite a passion for community and knowledge that can broaden  horizons and inspire change on a global scale. We aim to spark creative expression, fuel inquisitive minds, and build deep and authentic connections through the exploration of artistic, and culturally diverse experiences.

2020 THEME:

The Children's Festival Society of Kelowna is thrilled to announce it's first ever Virtual Children's Festival. Join us for a 3-day fun-filled online event where fun can be had by the whole family! Enjoy LIVE content from local artists, business owners, educators, and cultural groups that will not only expand your knowledge but also connections within our amazing Okanagan community! Even though we can't gather in person right now,  it is so important to stay connected to our local community so this year's theme has been adapted to focus on just that: the people who make up our local Okanagan community, our beautiful environment, and the local businesses and industries that drive our economy, People, Planet, Profit.
