Introducing the 2024 Children's festival theme:


Capturing the Light


Join us where children will make their own glow lanterns using upcycled bottles, streamers and tissue paper shapes.  Children and caregivers will have an opportunity to shine their light in the festival's first, Parade of Lights at Crocker Park at sundown. (Parade information will be forthcoming.)


Enjoy the colors of the rainbow and make a crystal sun catcher to light up your days and remind you of all of the fun you had. 


Solar paper sculptures -arrange objects on special sun paper that reacts under ultraviolet rays to capture your unique image in just a few minutes.  Gently rinse the paper in the water basin for keepsake. 


Sunglass designs- kids can create their own funky sunglasses with stickers, gems and markers to see the world through rose colored glasses all day long.    


MiraMar Print Lab returns for a fourth consecutive festival to instruct children in the art of printmaking. MiraMar Print Lab is a printmaking art studio focusing on letter press, silk screen, monotype, and relief printing.


We're absolutely thrilled to announce that this year, The Devereux School of Marblehead is joining the fun to help us color beaming stained glass creations.







The children's festival tradition continues with Teresa Coelho from Music Together to lead our budding musicians in magical jam sessions.  Music Together ​ to conduct budding musicians in musical medleys.






We are pleased to announce that North Shore Glass School will be joining the Festival. NSGS artist-educators will demonstrate the process of fused and stained glass art tools and techniques that include scoring, cutting and soldering glass. Art teachers will be there to answer questions you may have like, 'blown glass is that hot?!"  Be sure to visit the North Shore Glass School tent at the Children's festival to learn about this unique artform.



Let's hear it for the Marblehead high school student volunteers and face paint extraordinaires who are true magicians for making the festival a success every year through their community service such as painting hundreds of children's faces under the hot sun.  


All of the children's festival activities are free, geared toward children under 10, and are open to the public. The projects can get a bit messy and children must be accompanied by an adult. 

Chairpersons: Lisa and Eliza Ginivisian
