This year, too, we’re joining the great festival of the Venice Carnival, but this time as part of a project that involves kids and their families: the International Kids’ Carnival, organised by La Biennale di Venezia from February 3rd to 11th, 2018.
Here’s what it is and how to take part in it.
La Biennale di Venezia’s Kids’ Carnival
2018 marks 9 years since La Biennale started opening its headquarters in Ca’ Giustinian to schools and families for some creative workshops, during the days of Venice Carnival. The aim? Letting kids – and not only! – play an active role in the celebration, by using all their creativity to create masks and costumes and join in various activities.
From February 3rd to 11th, 2018 the palace’s ground, first, second and fifth floor will therefore burst with science, music and art workshops. In particular, from Monday to Saturday they’re meant for schools, and on Saturday and Sunday for families.
If you’re planning a Carnival trip to Venice, this is your chance to let your kids be the protagonists of the festival. ANd you won’t miss the masks and celebrations on St. Mark’s Square, either: the heart of the city is just a 5-minute walk from Ca’ Giustinian!
Not to be forgotten
All workshops are free, but a reservation is required.
But most of all, there’s going to be an activity dedicated to creative costume-making, which is joined by… our fabrics!

Using fabrics, paper and other recycled materials, kids are going to create small and simple objects, with the assistance of the members of some local associations.
Just remember to book your workshop at the Kids’ Carnival, and that you’ll be asked to leave your smartphones upon entering Ca’ Giustinian: this day’s going to be exclusively dedicated to your creativity and dear ones!
