This year, the 2020 World Connections Children’s Festival will be a new, virtual experience. Children’s Festival To-Go! invites you to celebrate the diverse cultures in Utah by joining us on a road trip across the state and sharing new virtual experiences. This year’s festival includes a printable activity book with a map identifying historical sites across Utah, new recipes to try at home and traditional art projects. Stay tuned during the week for live experiences on our Facebook!
