Saturday April 28 to Sunday May 6

The Juvenis Festival is Kingston's Youth Arts Festival, one of only two youth arts festivals in all of Canada! Juvenis showcases the talented #ygkyouth between the ages of 13-30. 

This 9 day-long festival gives young people an opportunity to act, sing, dance, perform, and showcase their artistic talents, as well as take free workshops and masterclasses to build on their interests and skills in the arts. Everyone involved in this festival is under the age of 30, including all paid staff positions, participants and volunteers. While our workshops are only open to youth, we invite audience members of all ages to take in Juvenis productions and events!
