The 6th International Children’s Festival in Paphos

The 6th International Children’s Festival will be held in Paphos.

The festival will take place for the sixth time and every years, the main theme of the festival is different.

The first festival with the topic “Russia as kids see it” took place in the spring of 2012 with the aim to engage kids to learn about history and culture of Russia, getting to know the traditions and involving in the hand crafting. In the spring of 2013 the 2nd Festival was held with great success. The artistic efforts and imagination were united with a simple topic “I live in Cyprus”. The topic of the 3rd festival was “The Magical world”, which was held in May of 2014. In the year 2015, the festival’s topic was “The Kind Heart”, in the year 2016 the theme of the festival was “Friendship”.

This year, in view of the fact that Pafos became the cultural capital of Europe, the festival was named “Mosaic of Cultures”.
