FREE Cocheco Arts Children’s Series every Tuesday morning!
Every Tuesday morning during the Cochecho Arts Festival a different national or regional children’s performer takes to the Rotary Arts Pavilion Stage in Downtown Dover. The Children’s Series features a different performance each week ranging from juggling, to magic, animal education, music, and more. This series will be enjoyed by children of all ages!
The host site, the Rotary Arts Pavilion is located in Henry Law Park, and is footsteps away from the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire, the City’s Indoor Swimming Pool, and the playground and grassy riverside expanse at Henry Law Park itself. All of this makes for an extremely enjoyable and fun-filled day for the entire family right in downtown Dover. Each week, the Children’s Series features a different performance, including music, dancing, puppeteers, jugglers and magicians.
These shows are guaranteed to entertain the entire family. All Cochecho Arts Festival activities are free and open to the public.
