Family Fun in the Flynn Lobby

Dec 4th, 2019

Picture the Flynn’s Main Stage lobby abuzz with youthful energy at 10 am on a Saturday morning, with dozens of families joining together to sing, dance, play, and learn. This has been a monthly scene at the Flynn since September, when a new series was introduced: Free Family Saturdays.

The series kicked off with special guests Mr. Chris and Friends on September 14. In October, Chief Don Stevens and Nulhegan Drum from the Vermont Abenaki Artist Association engaged families with storytelling and drumming. In November, Red Kite Green Mountain put on imaginative, sensory-friendly shows for young people on the autism spectrum.

There’s much more to come. On December 7, dynamite local Afro-funk septet Sabouyouma plays.

In January, DJ Craig Mitchell hosts a family dance party. February features Flynn artist-in-residence Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR). And in April, Young Tradition Vermont pays a visit.

Attendance is free and while walkups are welcome, pre-registration is suggested. To find out more about upcoming Free Family Saturday events, go to

A safe place where a kid or adult can be free to explore and enjoy without limitations, feeling welcomed and accepted regardless of ability.
