The City of Buena Park Fine Arts Division proudly presents the Children’s Art Festival and Jr. High Art Show at 6688 Beach Blvd.
The Children’s Art Festival provides a wonderful opportunity for parents and children to enjoy a day discovering the arts together. Hands-on art activities, live music, and much more provide a delightful celebration of the rich cultural traditions that thrive in our own backyards! In honor of Earth Day, festival activities will focus on being kind to our planet, so craft projects will incorporate found and recycled objects easily found in the home.
