Overview

Since 1985, the Ottawa Children’s Festival (OCF) has hosted an annual celebration of the best in live performing arts for children. Creating programs for children aged two to 15, the Festival focuses on enriching school curriculum and promoting the arts as an integral part of children’s education; strives to present work that excites and challenges audiences of all ages; and prides itself on developing and producing award winning programming that comes from across Canada and around the world. Schools, community groups, caregivers and families of children age two to 15 are the target audience of the OCF.
