Children's Festival (May 2019)

Starts:  May 21, 2019 9:00 AM (ET)
Ends:  May 22, 2019 1:00 PM (ET)

Every spring, the Emily Jordan Folger Children's Shakespeare Festival brings hundreds of students in grades 3–6 together on our stage to perform Shakespeare for one another. Students engage with Shakespeare's language & characters performing scenes, and learning from the performances of others as they work together to create an abbreviated version of a single play to life.

The Festival, which is open to schools in the DC, Virginia, and Maryland metropolitan area, features a full Folger experience and memories that will last a lifetime.

Registration has closed for the March and May 2019 dates but stay tunes for the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 dates!
