Festivals of Light is an annual exhibit, returning each November as we prepare for the holiday season and the many cultural celebrations that happen.
Festivals of Light explores a winter holiday celebration for a typical family. Children explore the food, decorations, games, activities and music associated with each holiday as they step into a “household” amidst their celebration. Each week, the kid-sized dwelling space of a family changes to celebrate a new festival including their kitchen and living room, a family craft table and a reading space.
