The Juvenis Festival is Kingston's Youth Arts Festival showcasing the talented #ygkyouth from in and around our community as part of National Youth Week. The third instalment of Juvenis will be held from April 28- May 6, 2018. 

This 9 day long festival gives young people between the ages of 13 and 30 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!
