The All Kids Included (AKI) Family Arts Festival is presented annually as a FREE innovative, multidisciplinary community arts festival for children and families with and without disabilities at the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center.
The All Kids Included Family Arts Festival was developed by the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs as part of its All Kids Included initiative. All Kids Included is made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners, and in part through grant funding provided by The Children’s Trust. The Children’s Trust is a dedicated source of revenue established by voter referendum to improve the lives of children and families in Miami-Dade County.
This year, the 14th annual All Kids Included festival has transitioned into the 1st ever digital All Kids Included Festival! Please play the welcome video below and learn about this web page and the accessibility features.
