International Childrens’ Festival of the Arts in St. Albert Giveaway!

The 43rd International Children’s Festival of the Arts in St. Albert—one of the largest and longest-running children’s festivals in North America—returns next weekend May 30 – June 2! 

The International Children’s Festival of the Arts brings the best in children’s arts and cultural experiences and includes both FREE and ticketed arts experiences. I’m looking forward to bringing Benjimin to the festival’s Toddler Town, a community-inspired munchkin metropolis that’s a one-stop shop for storytelling, musical performances, crafts, self-guided sensory bins and an active fun zone. There’s so much fun arts and crafts, plus roving performers, an outdoor stage, a kid sized maze and more! Fun for the whole family.
