elPetit Festival

The aim of elPetit Festival is to bring live arts closer to early childhood  and to emphasize the importance of experiencing artistic events in the early years of life.


From 9 to 24 November 2024, elPetit Festival will fill the venues of 13 Spanish cities with some of the best national and international shows specifically devised for young audiences. elPetit pays homage to the very essence of elPetit: it features an extensive repertoire including high-quality, immersive experiences, innovative shows in multiple languages and a wonderful array of emerging acting talents. 


In total, more than 100 venues will be home to a variety of artistic encounters where small children will be able to look at the world by mixing play, senses, and imagination.


But elPetit is much more than an Arts Festival! Research, training, dialogue, and networking are also at stake. That is why, parallel to the festival, the IX International Arts Meeting for (early) Childhood (14-17 Nov.) will be holding an open meeting for artists and professionals from the cultural, educational, health and social industries with a wide programme full of lectures, debates and workshops by leading theatre figures. A bright chance to throw an in-depth look at the current and future panorama of the arts in the (early) childhood.


Experience elPetit's universe as you never did before —a unique opportunity to discover extraordinary art spaces to meet and share with your peers.

We look forward to seeing you at elPetit, a place where imagination takes flight!
