Kids Creative Arts Street Fair on the Square! 

Join us Saturday, August 21 from 10 AM to 2 PM as we celebrate the creative arts with the Street Fair on the Square! Over a dozen Paducah arts and culture organizations will provide a wide variety of free “hands on” experiences for all ages! Children may choose between the many booths offering crafts, art, drama, music, games, stories, dance—and—just fun! Booths will be spread out around both sides on the Market House building.

Free Performance Schedule:

10 AM - PlayTime presents a FREE performance of Sleeping Beauty! Pod reservations are required - bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on! To reserve: 270.444.6828
Join the Clubhouse at the Market House Gang as kids participate in the telling of the story by singing and interacting along with the Clubhouse actors! Learn the word of the day and secret password and don’t forget your magic keys to unlock the Rainbow Story Book! It’s an engaging performance perfect for “wiggle-giggle” audiences! Our story this time is Sleeping Beauty - Help the Prince wake Princess Briar Rose (and the rest of the kingdom) out of their enchanted sleep!  Lots of fun audience participation in this retelling of the classic fairy tale!

11 AM & 2 PM - The Carson Center presents: Professor Wow’s Fun-Believable Science Show! RSVP your socially distanced pod for live science show.
WOW! Pow! How! When students see Professor Wow’s zany, high-energy FUN-Believable Science Show℠ and experience the fantastic, 12-foot tall “Foam Monster,” the impossible “Balloons in Orbit,” the uproariously funny “Bernoulli TP Wipe Out Challenge” and the “Super-Colossal Vortex Cannon.” They learn that nothing is impossible—as long as it obeys the laws of science!
