Youth Festival: Unity in the Community!

May 28, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm


This fun event features a variety of workshops, demonstrations, activities, exhibits, and entertainment throughout the day, including a performance by the Waynesboro Children’s Theatre Troupe singing Songs of the 80s.

Specialty “playshops” tie in the theme with all sorts of fun activities. Check out the list of all Youth Fest activities here, and be sure to pre-register for the three special playshops! The event flier has all the details.

Celebrate unity in many communities, from the natural world around us, to music, dance, stories, activities and crafts from world cultures like Asia and Latin America. Get your passport stamped as you make your way around the festival globe!

Professional guest performer Cantaré — ¡Mucha Música! – Travel with native Argentinians Cecilia Esquivel and Dani Cortaza on a musical journey to Latin America. You’ll be transported by song and dance to experience the many rhythms and unique instruments from different regions, while learning about the three cultures that shaped Latin music: Indigenous, European and African.

Cantaré will perform Spanish and Portuguese songs and rhythms while using unique instruments such as donkey jaw, goat toenail rattle, and armadillo shell guitar. Kids can get in on the action with singing, playing instruments, and salsa dancing.

Cantaré has performed at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Smithsonian’s Discovery Theatre, Wolf Trap Theatre, Washington D.C.’s Arena Stage, and venues throughout the Washington D.C. and Baltimore areas.
