Kids Euro Festival!

Standard

Hey D.C. — it’s that time of year again.   I love the Kids Euro Festival.  Twenty-seven European Union countries and their embassies open their doors to showcase the best European productions for kids.  With over 150 performances to see over the next month….you can’t go wrong in introducing a new culture to your kids.  There are puppeteers from Finland,  clowns from Estonia, cartoons from Poland, music from Sweden.  Last year I took the boys to see a few different events – mimes from France were by far their favorite and a comical play from Cyprus was a hit as well.   Not only are the performances/films fun but it also presents a great opportunity to check out places you’ve always wanted to see.  The Goethe Institute, French Embassy, House of Sweden, Shakespeare Theatre, Artisphere and others.  Venues also include the Kennedy Center, local libraries, embassies and schools.   For a complete schedule of events click here.  All events are free and many don’t even require reservations.
