Children’s Carnival Offers Youngsters Opportunity to Explore the Globe Without Leaving Fort Collins

Colorado State University is hosting the 11th annual International Children’s Carnival from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 2, in the Lory Student Center’s Main Ballroom. The program gives children and their parents an opportunity to increase their knowledge and understanding of different cultures by engaging with traditional children’s games, crafts, songs, dances and storytelling.

This year’s theme is "Wonders of the Universe: A Journey through Time." Games and crafts are targeted to children ages 3-12.  

"By participating in activities from various cultures, children increase their knowledge and understanding of the world," said Jen Christ, programs coordinator for Apartment Life at the university. "The exhibit of diverse songs, dances, games and crafts provides new outlets for children in their exploration of the arts. This experience is a great asset for parents looking for new ways to excite, engage and entertain their children."

The International Children’s Carnival is free and open to the public. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

The International Children’s Carnival is sponsored by Colorado State University’s Housing and Dining Services, Apartment Life, Off-Campus Student Services and Resources for Adult Learners, and the Lory Student Center Diversity Grant.
