The Blue Ribbon Children’s Festival is an annual admission-free program specifically designed for fifth grade students to attend a live, professional performance at The Music Center. Sponsored by The Blue Ribbon, the festival began in 1970 as part of The Music Center’s commitment to engage young people in the arts, and is one of California’s longest ongoing free arts education programs. More than 830,000 children have participated in the festival since its inception, and for many, the festival is their first experience at a live performing arts event.
