Mark your calendars for Kennedy Center Family Day: Con Las Puertas Abiertas (With Open Doors) on Saturday, October 1 from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in various venues on the Terrace Level. It's FREE to attend, no tickets required! In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, your entire family is invited to this fun-filled day of free performances, demonstrations, and hands-on activities inspired by Latino culture.
The entire Terrace level of the Kennedy Center will be transformed into a fair/playground with activities, performances, and games for families and children of all ages. Activities will include coloring, face painting, instrument building, and poetry writing. There will be 2 interactive murals for kids to create their own art.
The highlight of the day will be a special activity that involves all attendees: THE BIG HUG of the Kennedy Center. We’re celebrating unity, friendship, and diversity by joining hands in solidarity and wrapping around the entire building. Batalá Washington will lead the crowd into “el fuerte abrazo.”
Events for youth of all ages will take place throughout the Terrace Level of the Kennedy Center (in the Atrium & Foyers, Terrace Gallery, and Nations and States Galleries), including music and dance performances from local Latino artists, open dance classes, instrument demonstrations, a photo station, coloring, musical instrument making, face painting, interactive games, murals exploring fruits in Latino countries, and a mural celebrating the diverse D.C. community.
Children and families are encouraged to attend in their native/traditional dress, and the day will feature an opportunity for kids to showcase their costumes.
This KC Family Day is part of Con Los Brazos Abiertos--Embracing Mexico, a series of programs connected to the Kennedy Center's yearlong JFKC: A Centennial Celebration of John F. Kennedy.
