Join us for a FREE, fun-filled day of art and performances for the whole family! The day long Children's Festival of the Arts has become a widely anticipated community event created by the Hollywood Arts Council. It is a day of fun for the whole family, filled with cultural arts performances, music and activities for children of all ages. This year we are happy to have 7 excellent performances (emceed by Casey McCabe from AMP Radio 97.1) and 9 creative and kid-friendly arts workshops. There will also be face painting, magic, food from All American Softy Ice Cream and the Border Grill Food Truck (for purchase), child celebrities from your favorite TV shows and movies, and Bugs Bunny from Six Flags Magic Mountain!! For many, this annual festival is one of the few outlets in which families with young children can be exposed to the arts and multi-cultural performances. This festival not only introduces young children to art, but involves them with performances and art workshops representing the rich and diverse cultural fabric which comprises Hollywood and Los Angeles. Don't miss this incredible celebration!
