Kids Trail

Initiated by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S, Kids Trail is a cultural program dedicated to children and families. 

Designed as a yearlong artistic journeyKids Trail offers children and adults the opportunity to explore French arts and culture through a variety of disciplines: cinema, theater, design, dance, visual arts, philosophy, music and literature.

Families and schools are invited to discover and enjoy events and performances featuring some of the most creative French artists.

The French Cultural Services believes that arts are a significant part of the learning process. Through Kids Trail, it aims to engage and inspire young generations, and in particular underprivileged communities, through innovative events, performances, creative workshops, debates on societal issues, dialogues with artists and professionals and much more.


In 2016, Kids Trail kicked off in New York City with Tilt Kids Festival, an inaugural festival co-presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF).


Kids Trail is organized in collaboration with a network of cultural institutions, schools, and universities throughout the country.

In 2016, the program was supported by Air France, FACE Foundation, The Florence Gould Foundation, the French Ministry for Culture and Communication, Institut français-Paris, and SACD (Société des auteurs et compositeurs dramatiques).

In 2017, the program was supported by Air France, FACE Foundation, The Florence Gould Foundation, the French Ministry for Culture and Communication, Institut français-Paris, La Roche-Posay, and SACD (Société des auteurs et compositeurs dramatiques).

In 2018, the program was supported by FACE Foundation, The Florence Gould Foundation, the French Ministry for Culture and Communication, Institut français-Paris, La Roche-Posay, and SACD (Société des auteurs et compositeurs dramatiques).
