A Global celebration where Children come together to

have fun,

build memories, & Cherish diversity!

The 2022 Festival was held in the Bond Park on Saturday, April 23, 2022
we welcomed our diverse community For a great celebration


    The Children's Day Festival of Cary focuses on the importance of the next generation, our children, with the intent of helping them develop an appreciation for the colorful mosaic of cultures in our area.  Deriving from the rich ethnic and cultural tapestry in our community, we strive to put together an event that will enrich and entertain the young members of our society. This event also bridges various visions: 

It is a mini version of the nation-wide celebrations that have been taking place in Turkey for the past 88 years as a national holiday, a children’s version of the international festival, and an event where children are exposed to several unique art forms.

We had a record turnout for the festival:

  • Over 3,000 people attending,

  • Over 350 children from 23 groups performing,

  • 11 community corner groups engaged in kids activities,

  • Professional face painting and balloon animals

  • Make and take arts/craft activities, and

  • Over 100 volunteers working countless hours.
