Children and the Arts Day

May 18 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The 29th Annual Children and the Arts Festival will fill the streets of Peterborough for a day of performances, displays, activities, and, of course, the giant puppet parade on Saturday, May 18! This year’s theme is “Birds of a Feather” providing endless possibilities for fun ways to flock together. Learn more about Children and the Arts HERE.

The Monadnock Center is pleased to be one of the performance venues that day as well as “Festival Central” where you can pick up a festival schedule and have your questions answered by a Children and the Arts volunteer. Please note the Monadnock Center’s museum, archives and gift shop will not be open on Saturday, May 18.

For the safety and comfort of all attendees, we kindly request that you refrain from bringing your dogs to the Children and the Arts Festival. This year, in particular, as there will be several live bird acts, it is especially important to minimize any potential disruptions.
