For the curious kid in everyone, from age 5 and up
Every February, it’s party time. Giant pennants, colourful garlands and musical confetti in the air ... the signs are unmistakable! It’s the BIG BANG, two days of sonic adventures that transform every square centimetre of the National Arts Centre into a delightful treasure trove of surprises. Get ready for one mind-blowing discovery after another! A musical ride here, a wacky sound machine there, plus a host of mini-concerts and a brass band to top it all off! The BIG BANG will be in full swing during Family Day weekend and Winterlude. Don’t miss the fun on February 17 and 18, 2024.
Stay tuned! The full program, including a host of free activities, will be unveiled on January 16th.
