The first annual NYC KidsFest is a free family festival in Morningside Park in Harlem. This one day family event brings performances of outstanding artistic quality to New York families. Packed with music, theater, dance, storytelling, and much more, this festival promises to delight, inspire, and arouse the imaginations of children of all ages in a fun atmosphere.
The 2006 Festival promises to be one of the most diversely programmed festivals in town. It will feature some of the finest children's performing arts groups in New York City. Highlights include a hilarious and sophisticated performance of Los Tres Cerditos/The Three Little Pigs by Los Kabayitos, New York's only Latino Children's theater that performs plays in both English and Spanish. Other highlights include The Deedle Deedle Dees, a rock band for kids that sings about a lot of silly topics, The Harlem Improv Troupe which features teen performers, Uptown Dance Academy, and a performance by Treehouse Shakers, a dance theater company for young audiences that mixes live music and theater.
Presented by The Friends of Morningside Park, NYC.
