What would a children's festival be without puppets? I Think I Can, from Australia invites kids to choose puppet characters & become temporary residents of a miniature model railway world. For more kid-powered entertainment, don’t miss the city’s first kid-co-created multi-media installation performance: Me on the Map.

Last but not least, if you can't decide who to see, there's always the Variety Show. Watch Festival performers cut loose at our annual Variety show on Saturday, May 30 at 6:30pm. This year’s tour de force, hosted by comedian Michel Lauzière, features the captivating Inuit storytelling of Taqralik Partridge, the zany circus antics of Les Parfait Inconnus, the uplifting fusion beats of the Good Day Sunshine Band as well as toe-tapping, sing along tunes from Will Stroet & his BackYard Band.
