Surrey SPARK Stages

Surrey Spark Stages

Igniting imaginations and making memories.

As Canadians, we celebrate our diverse cultural heritage, and the growth of our younger generations to learn and explore what this country, and this planet, has to offer. In Surrey, this isn’t any different, and we want to inspire our children to greater possibilities. This is where the Surrey SPARK Stages come in.

Evolved from the Surrey International Children’s Festival, Surrey SPARK Stages is a series of year-round memory-making performing arts experiences created especially for kids and families that starts with a bang with a weekend of spectacular theatre performances and activities.  From aerial circus to music, these performances are for the whole family with shows for babies, toddlers, and tweens that grown-ups will love too!

The weekend festivities kick off with Light the SPARK! a dance party for the whole family, and during the weekend, the Surrey Arts Centre will be sprinkled with a magical sparkle dusting in the form of plenty of value-added activities for ticketholders to enjoy, including the Wee Studio, a special space for make-believe for little ones, Stories for the Heart, old-timey storytelling with a modern-day twist in a big blanket fort, walk through a traditional longhouse arch into the Indigenous Creation Courtyard for a celebration of Indigenous culture and art, and many other “sparkalicious” surprises!
