Free BrittKids Koncerts

We hope you enjoyed our 2022 BrittKids Koncert Series, live and in-person at the Britt Performance Garden. We had a great time and can't wait until next summer. Check back here next spring, when we announce the 2023 lineup!

BrittKids Koncerts create a fun and casual setting for local families to introduce their children to music, dance, and the visual arts. These free performances, especially designed for children under age 10, help our next generation of artists learn about the performing arts in a way that is both entertaining and educational. Early exposure to live performance increases a child’s interest in artistic activities, such as learning an instrument, singing, dancing, painting, or participating in a theater program.

For more information about the BrittKids Koncerts program, contact Kay Hilton, Director of Education & Engagement at education@brittfest.org.
