Uptown International Children’s Festival

Explore the whimsical wonders of theatre with internationally-acclaimed guests this May long weekend in North York!

The Uptown International Children’s Festival, presented by TO Live, is an action-packed and fun-filled weekend where children of all ages and their families can experience live theatrical performances, participate in sing-alongs, explore worlds of wonder, and create new and lasting memories.
Toronto Centre for the Arts will host theatrical performances, with FREE outdoor activities and interactive events happening at the adjacent Mel Lastman Square.
