Anaheim Children's Festival

Saturday May 20th, 2017

The 25th Annual Anaheim Children's Festival is coming on Saturday, May 20 to Pearson Park in Anaheim! The Festival opens at 10 a.m. and art is happening until 3:00 p.m. New art will be added and the Festival continues to grow. The City of Anaheim and Anaheim Arts Council have been bringing art to Anaheim at the Anaheim Children's Festival for 25 years! Every year the Festival gets bigger and better - more dance, more art, more music, more drawing!

The Pearson Park location last year was a perfect site for an afternoon in the Park with dance, art, music and more. This year's event promises even more. There will be more dancing lessons on site and more art created and displayed. 2 stages will welcome live entertainment all day. More hands on music will bring a "petting zoo" of musical instruments to the Festival. Art lessons and technique will come to the Festival as well.

Top right, please find the forms needed to join the fun. Entertainment forms for performers. Booth application forms for any organization who wants to bring art to our Orange County young people and their families.

Any questions, please call me at 714-815-3885! I look forward to hearing from you and join the fun at our 25th Anaheim Children's Festival!

Over 20 booths will decorate the entrance area outside the Amphitheater in Pearson Park. The collection of booths will house a broad variety of local organizations who will bring an art project for attendees to participate in. From origami to plate painting, children and their families will be encouraged to try art, and all participants will be applauded for their efforts.


Two stages will be located at the Festival – local groups that do a variety of entertainment will be featured. Musicians, puppets, bands, vocal groups, and dancers will perform from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Organizations are encouraged to contact the Children’s Festival to perform.

Non-profit organizations can participate by hosting a food booth and raising funds for their organization and programs.



The K-6th Grade Art Showcase. Display of children’s visual art from schools around Anaheim.  Look for the Visual Arts Tent. Find your art, or your friends’ art. Open all day. Very cool.
