Rendezvous for Kids, a 2-day arts festival for children established in 1992, is part of Rendezvous in Moscow, Inc. and occurs annually in conjunction with Rendezvous in the Park, a 3-day concert series. Rendezvous for Kids and Rendezvous in the Park take place in Moscow’s beautiful East City Park.
Rendezvous for Kids offers children an opportunity to experience a multitude of artistic disciplines including music, drama, tie-dye, dance, painting, sculpture, and more. All art workshops are designed to be age appropriate and represent culturally diverse artistic media and genre. We work hard to ensure that no child is excluded due to financial or physical challenge.
Main Program – During Rendezvous for Kids, approximately 100 pre-registered children (5-12 years of age) and 40 volunteers convene at 8:30 a.m. each morning and participate in a variety of hands-on art activities and in-depth art workshops; a Rendezvous t-shirt, lunch and a lunchtime performance are also included in the morning’s activities. Registration fees are $35/child for both mornings, or $20/child for one morning.
Preschool Program – A preschool program is provided for children 3-4 years old accompanied by a responsible adult. This program costs $15/child/day and $30 for both days. The preschool program starts at 10:00 a.m. It includes a structured hour of preschool appropriate art activities, unstructured time at the hands-on art activities of the Main Program, a Rendezvous t-shirt, lunch and lunchtime entertainment.
Walk-On Program – Children not registered in Rendezvous for Kids are encouraged to join us in the park (accompanied by a responsible adult) to experience a wide assortment of hands-on art activities. On-site registration for this program is available in the park from 9:00 a.m. each day and costs $10/child. The walk-on program includes the wide variety of hands-on art activities, lunch and lunchtime entertainment. It does not include a Rendezvous t-shirt or participation in the in-depth art workshops.
In the Park – Please make sure to equip your child with a reusable bag, water bottle and other appropriate sundries. Rendezvous for Kids takes place outside (rain or shine); make sure your children are prepared.
Partial scholarships are available upon request.
We hope to see you in the park!
