EU - Kids Euro Festival

Now in its 14th year, Kids Euro Festival is one of the largest Performing Arts Festivals for children in America and brings some of Europe's most talented entertainers for children to the nation's capital. As always, the Kids Euro Fest is completely FREE, but please make sure to RSVP and review the EU's privacy policy here​.

Join the European Union and our Member States for one of the largest performing arts festivals for children in America: The Kids Euro Fest! Hosted over two Saturdays -- first at the French Embassy (October 9th) and then at the Swedish Embassy (October 16th) -- the Kids Euro Fest Family Days will feature in-person European performances, interactive workshops, food vendors and music that everyone in your family will enjoy.

Programming runs from 12:00PM-4:00PM each day! 

On October 9th: Embassy of France, 4101 Reservoir Rd NW, Washington, DC 20007  

Families can enjoy a variety of activities for kids of all ages. There will be a German theatrical production to transport guests into a fairytale, a workshop with a Latvian children’s book illustrator, an Irish dance performance and lesson, and a Portuguese art activity. Our French hosts will present a workshop on climate change, along with a short film screening. Throughout the day, kids can get creative at the craft table, engage in some friendly competition with outdoor games and indulge in food catered by the French Embassy’s very own chef.

On October 16th: Embassy of Sweden, 2900 K St NW, Washington, DC 20007

Families are welcome on the beautiful Georgetown grounds of the Swedish Embassy for the second family day of the Kids Euro Fest.

Throughout the day, kids can enjoy getting creative at the craft table, join in outdoor games or try some European style food from our local vendors.
