International festival takes you on a trip around the world
From musical performances to dance workshops, the Week-ends du Monde festival will once again be holding a multitude of free activities for children on July 9 & 10 and 16 & 17.
Since last year, La Fête des enfants de Montréal, a party for kids under 12, has became the family-friendly portion of the Week-ends du Monde festival at Parc Jean-Drapeau. Visitors can get a taste of Cuba, Jamaica, Trinidad, Cambodia, Colombia and many other places through musical sets, food sampling, percussion workshops and arts & crafts.
To kick off these festivities, local artist Kattam et ses Tam-Tams incorporates Eastern sounds during his interactive percussion and storytelling performance. For the little foodies, educational entertainer Ari Cui Cui will be discussing and showcasing different cuisines from around the globe. On July 16, Martin Carli, the host of the popular science TV program Génial!, will be performing experiments on stage. There will also be soccer workshops, an obstacle course, slides and tunnels, inflatables and face painting.
Although the family segment takes place every day from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and is geared towards kids ages 12 and under, most of the festival’s performances and workshops are open to all ages. For more information and for full programming click here
