Fun Arts Day!

The San Antonio Folk Dance Festival is proud to host Fun Arts Day!, an exciting and enriching half-day event devoted to children in local schools. Fun Arts Day! takes place on Wednesday, March 14, at Our Lady of the Lake University's International Folk Culture Center.

Activities during Fun Arts Day! include:

  • Music
  • Art
  • Dance
  • Games
  • Storytelling
  • Puppetry
  • Demo dance performances
  • A presentation on anti-bullying

All of these activities are led by outstanding teachers that specialize in these areas.

Schoolteachers and parents are encouraged to stay and participate.

Children should wear comfortable play clothes and shoes.

Parents should bring lunch for them and their children. Please do not bring any red soda drinks. These are not allowed in our ballroom because they stain when spilled.

There is no charge for attending the event. However, participation is organized by school class (there is no walk-in or individual sign-up), and space is limited!
