The Oakville Children’s Festival offers a line-up of free entertainment designed to encourage children and families to explore and discover arts and culture.
Toopy and Binoo, the popular cat and mouse duo from the hit children’s television show of the same name, will headline the 2017 Oakville Children’s Festival. Families across Oakville can dance and sing along to the theatrical production Toopy and Binoo: Fun and Games, as a toy chest full of games and puzzles ignite their curious imaginations.
The event will also feature performances by comedian and juggler Bob Cates, singer Mike Ford, Silk Acrobatic artist Heather Govender, KaHa:wi Dance Theatre’s Pow Wow Bootcamp, First Nations Storyteller Cheri Maracle, The Compound All Star Urban Dance Team, ROCKGarden Party, Toyland Puppet Show, and street magicians Ray Chance and Mike D’Urzo.
Celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary is also part of the line-up with a special dance performed by Oakville’s Balletomane Inc. and an ArtHouse community mural that will transform the festival into a patriotic arts and culture playground for kids of all ages.
There will also be fun hands-on activities and interactive shows, Touch-A-Truck, City Parent Scavenger Hunt, Oakville Public Library storytimes, Friends of Library Book Sale, Sport Oakville Zone, archery, martial arts, YMCA of Oakville, face painting, and Monkeynastix.
