“A Children’s Paradise”
Since 1985, the Ottawa Children’s Festival de la jeunesse (OCF) has hosted an annual celebration of the best in live performing arts for families. Creating programs for children, the Festival focuses on enriching school curriculum and promoting the arts as an integral part of a child’s education; strives to present work that excites and challenges audiences of all ages; and prides itself on developing and producing award winning programming that comes from across Canada and around the world.
In May 2023 the Ottawa Children’s Festival will be proud to welcome schools, daycares and groups of 10 or more with enrichment activities, ticket discounts, free on-site extras, and more! Bring a picnic, see a show, get your face painted then enjoy the on-site workshops and activities. Let us help you plan an unforgettable day!
OCF prides itself on the quality of its programming and the ability to bring the best in international theatre and performing arts to Ottawa. Ensuring that all families have affordable access to quality live performing arts is only possible with the continued support of our generous partners, sponsors, vendors, volunteers and advertisers.
