Three ways to prepare for the perfect day with your child

The Chilliwack Children’s Arts Festival on Sept. 23-24 will be a magical place to create and have fun.

As the sun begins to set on summer, and the cooler weather and shorter days drive most of us indoors, so too comes the start of new things for many children: a new school, a new classroom, a new teacher. The Chilliwack Children’s Arts Festival also returns in September for its second year, and aims to nurture creativity, playfulness, and boundless imagination during a time of transition.

Taking place at G.W. Graham Middle Secondary School September 23 and 24, the entire area will be transformed into a party, with a BBQ concession at the entrance. There will be an information booth, entertainment, and tents lining the gym, each with a special activity for children of all ages. The theatre will host the Purple Pirate, who will entertain audiences for three shows.

Three ways to prepare for the perfect day with your child

Prepare to be busy.

There are lots of hands-on art activities for children, musical performances, and food.

Parents, prepare to be entertained.

While the focus is on children, that doesn’t mean as a parent or guardian you are relegated to stand back and watch. Bring out your inner child by singing along and assisting in the art.

Don’t miss the Princess Pyjama Party.

With the most beautiful singing voices and amazing stage presence, The Ever After Princesses will entertain audiences with music and stories. Children are encouraged to come extra comfy by dressing in pyjamas and enjoying some pizza.

The Chilliwack Children’s Arts Festival will be a magical place to create and have fun. The organizers believe children need to be exposed to creative opportunities, so this festival aims to give children the chance to try many new things. For more information, visit
