Children’s Garden Series

A cornucopia of interactive performing arts for kids under 10 and their adults, taking place in the Children’s Garden at the corner of Howard and Fourth, near the historic Looff Carousel. School groups and summer day camps welcome!

Two performances each day: 11am & 12:15pm, approximately 30 minutes each (except Circus Bella and Halloween programs). Programs are held outdoors under the open sky, without much shade. Hats or caps are recommended to protect children from the sun.
