By attending Kidsfest After Hours, you help make Calgary International Children’s Festival accessible to all Calgarians, including those who can’t leave the Alberta Children’s Hospital, and those who couldn’t otherwise afford to attend.

Furthermore, our partners at Shaw Charity Classic’s Birdies for Kids have agreed to partially match all funds raised from the event, so your involvement can go even further to helping Calgary’s younger generations.

With only 100 tickets available, Kidsfest After Hours remains exclusively spectacular! Get your tickets here.

Can’t attend, but still want to show your support? We cannot thank you enough, but we can make it easy for you to give: Donate here.


Festival leadership work with the Calgary Board of Education and Calgary Catholic School District to provide complimentary tickets and transportation for up to 3,000 children from low income households (Kindergarten through grade 6) who would otherwise be unable to afford tickets or have the ability to attend and participate in the 2017 Calgary International Children’s Festival.

Some children only dream about the festival, because they cannot leave the Alberta Children’s Hospital. And since they can’t come to us, we bring the colours, sounds and laughter of the festival to them.
