Jamii's 2nd Annual Children's Festival
Local arts organization Jamii, in partnership with Canadian Stage and Berkeley Castle, will be producing the group's 2nd annual children’s festival Wayo (a Swahili word that means ‘footprint’, symbolizing the journey to life).
On August 19th, 20th and 21st, families will be invited to partake in a "parkour" experience where they will move through the beautiful local landmark Berkeley Castle (250 The Esplanade) and the nearby Berkeley Theatre to discover multiple live artistic installations and small-scale performances. Participants will be admitted on a timed-entry basis and physical distancing will be in effect.
Timing for the festival on each of the above dates are detailed on the events registration page at the link below:
