Support The Fat Cat Children's Festival!

2020 has been fairly difficult for all of us, but we can all agree it’s been especially hard on our kids. Many of the events they look forward to all year have been cancelled including shows and festivals. 

We at The Children's Festival Society of Kelowna don’t want to let anyone down, so we decided to move our annual Fat Cat Children’s Festival online instead of gathering in person. This way, our community can still have something enjoyable to look forward to and gather together safely. 

The Fat Cat Children’s Festival has been a longstanding favourite of the local Okanagan community. An event that showcases art, education, workshops and performances from local professionals to educate and inspire the youth of the Okanagan community. We’ve been putting on this festival since 1990, so this being our 30th year gives us even more reason to come together to make this festival possible. 

Our mission is always to have all children, and their families Ignite their Passion, Imagine their World, and Include their Community.

This year our festival will revolve around the theme of People, Planet and Profit as a way to showcase how we are all connected and how we each make an impact in our communities and the world. We have 3 days of shows, workshops, performances and more starting on Monday, November 23 and going on through Tuesday, November 24 and Wednesday, November 25.

Not only is this going to be a great online festival for parents and children who are staying at home, but also for teachers for their students in classrooms as well. All for absolutely free. 

Since this annual event is produced by a small non-profit society, we need help from people like you who care about our community as much as we do. All proceeds from our fundraiser will go toward the people who make this event possible including our expert performers, facilitators, authors and artists. Your kind donations will also go toward the long term sustainability of the festival, developing our amazing volunteer board, and management team, and towards the enhancement of the Fat Cat Children’s Festival experience for many more years to come.

When you make a donation, you’ll instantly receive a ticket to attend the 2020 Virtual Fat Cat Children’s Festival so you can see the impact your donation makes. 

Even just a small donation of just $25 can really make an impact to keep our festival going strong. Donate now and bring joy to the children of our community, because 2020 has been tough enough.
