The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), the non-profit organization responsible for the JUNOS, has partnered with KIDSFEST Ottawa in 2017.

Junior JUNOS is a live musical concert involving nominees for Children’s Album of the Year, and will take place on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 10 am as part of KIDSFEST Ottawa. 

Families will get to experience the very best of Canadian children’s music right here in Ottawa.

Join us for Ottawa’s BIGGEST and BEST Kids show and expo on April 1 & 2, 2017 at the EY Centre. This 50,000 square feet stroller-friendly facility will host unique exhibitors, interactive demonstrations, valuable resources and information and professional entertainment for parents and children alike!

Families will be amazed by award winning performers on the main stage, participate a variety of family-friendly activities, and discover unique items to purchase.

Many KIDSFEST Ottawa exhibitors encourage children to be interactive and try their services, with instructors and coaches ready to lend a helping hand.  Throughout the day, your children may play a mini game of soccer, use robotics to build objects, play an instrument, climb on a playground, perform martial arts moves, drink tea with a princess, pet an animal, ride a bicycle, paint a picture, jump on a bouncy castle, and much more! And all these attractions are included for FREE with the purchase of your general admission ticket.

Plus, parents can interact with local businesses, uncovering the best options for their children in many programs, including education, finance, child care, health & safety, sports & fitness, and arts & music. With so many local organizations exhibiting at KIDSFEST Ottawa, parents may benefit by discovering new child-friendly services and businesses available in their community.

We have a good mix of English and French exhibitors and performers; so whether you have lived in Ottawa for years or are a newcomer and learning a new culture and language, you can find all your services, resources and information in one place. 

The KIDSFEST Ottawa team is dedicated to one project each year – making KIDSFEST Ottawa the BIGGEST and BEST Kids show and expo in the National Capital Region.  Buy your tickets today to join in the fun!

It’s a fun-filled, action-packed, and informative weekend!
