Kids Festival Calender

The trend is that more festivals make an effort to make the kids feel as welcome as the grown-ups. Our favorite  festivals and annual happenings for kids in all ages – in Europe and the Americas.

More to come (and never to be finalized)


USA, Houston: Houston Childrens Festival – Shows, concerts and a lot of fun for kids


NORWAY, Oslo: Mini-ØYA, a music festival dedicated for families and kids. We highly recommend it:


USA New York City: Summer Stage for Kids, Free concerts and shows for the whole family – in some of the nicest park in NYC. Our little guinea-pigs loved it!


CANADA: Ottawa,  Les Grand Feux – Casino du Lac-Leamy. ‘Recognized as one of the top 100 events in North America. Experience fireworks as you never have before. International pyromusical (fireworks synchronized to an original soundtrack).

FRANCE: Annecy,On the first Saturday of August, the Bay of Albigny welcomes the biggest pyrotechnic show of Europe. 70 minutes of fireworks in rhythm with music, lights and special effects. A special show we think the whole family will enjoy!
