Every day, from June 9 through September 3 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., family performances and hands-on activities will take place in the Family Fun Tent, located on the Park’s Chase Promenade North.

Three Family Fun special presentations will round out the summer programming for families, including the spectacular Catalan street theater company, Sarruga and the U.S. premiere of Insects, which will take over the Chase Promenade, transforming it into a fantasy world on July 16 at 9 p.m., July 17 at 10 p.m. and July 18 at 3 p.m. Emerald City Theatre will bring their hilarious production of The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs to the Great Lawn on Sundays in August at noon (August 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29), and the Chinese Fine Arts Society will once again wind its way through the Park on Sunday, August 22 at 2:30 p.m. with the tale of QiXi: A Chinese Love Story.

Activities in the Family Fun tent every day include Wiggleworms at 10 a.m., when instructors from the Old Town School of Folk Music will lead young children in a fun-filled sing-along that will have kids singing and dancing to popular children's favorites from the Wiggleworms program. The Reading Circle follows at 11 a.m., and concerts by some of the most notable names in local and regional entertainment will take place at 1 p.m. Throughout the day, the Family Fun tent’s Activity Zone will include hands-on craft projects and garden, science and environmental activities led by some of the region’s popular museums and cultural institutions.
