From city to town, a Tim Hortons restaurant is a place for friends and family to gather, to share and to laugh. It is important to us to be at the centre of the communities we serve, making a positive impact and growing with our guests. As such, it is little wonder that we are so proud to support the Northern Alberta International Children’s Festival for 18 years—it is an event that is truly at the very heart of the City of St. Albert. From year to year, the sense of togetherness grows as parents bring their children downtown to experience the magic, amazement and sheer delights of the Festival. The excellence of the entertainment and the perfection of the productions corresponds with the values that motivate Tim Hortons— quality is our number one priority. And we see it shining through every year at this Festival. Serving the community means more than just serving coffee. It means making a meaningful difference in the lives of the individuals that come into our restaurants everyday and, to us, there is no better way to make a difference than to help educate and inspire our children. Together with our restaurant owners, we are just as excited (maybe, even more so) to be heading into another year of partnering with this phenomenal Festival. Let the wonder begin!

MESSAGE FROM THE mayor

Our Government knows how important arts and culture is to our identity, our economy and our communities. We also know how important it is to provide our young people with opportunities to discover our country’s rich heritage and explore the world of arts and culture. As we approach Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, this is the perfect time to celebrate everything that makes this such a remarkable country.

Wonder isn’t simply a feeling; it is the first step in a child’s engagement in their own education. Wonder ignites an inquisitive mind, and when a child makes a new discovery at the Northern Alberta International Children’s Festival, questions flood forth: How does it work? How’d they do that? Can I do that? Suddenly they’re interested -- in history, in world cultures, in music, in art and so much more. The quality of this Festival is a direct reflection of the quality of our great city. The community comes together as hundreds of volunteers organize to make this a seamless, world-class event. And it is not only children who reap the benefits. The economic impact of 50,000 people coming out to play in St. Albert is felt across multiple industries. Support for our cultural sector creates job growth, spin-off business and tourism. Amazing performances cultivate wonder in the minds of our youngest citizens. And we all benefit. It is truly a WONDERful time!

James Moore

Au nom du premier ministre Stephen Harper et du gouvernement du Canada, je remercie tous ceux et celles qui donnent vie au Northern Alberta International Children’s Festival de cette année.

The truth is, it takes a lot of hard work to create a wonderland like the Northern Alberta International Children’s Festival. A hub of activities lights up downtown St. Albert for five days every year—a radiant village of storytelling, crafts, cultural activities, history and adventure. The result is wonder: a glorious mix of laughter, amazement and a newly kindled interest in the wide world around us. But to fill a child with that sense of wonder takes hundreds of helping hands and generous hearts. For the Friends of the Northern Alberta International Children’s Festival Society, it is a privilege to help staff ensure the excellence of this flagship event. As a board, we focus on advocating for sustainable arts funding from government and seeking support from businesses and individuals in the region, so this important educational opportunity stays accessible to all. And year after year, when we ask, the response is a wave of enthusiastic giving that is both inspiring and very much appreciated. Thank you. We love to meet new friends, so come say hi at our tent in front of St. Albert Place. Or, if you are looking to make a sweet contribution to the Festival this spring, please join us for our Cupcake Challenge at St. Albert Centre on Saturday, May 11th. Cast your vote as our sponsors battle for cupcake supremacy, decorating dainty cakes in order to raise funds for the Festival. So let it glow, let it glow, let it glow… it’s “The Most WONDERful Time of the Year!”

Wonder is an easy expression to spot: eyes grow wide, jaws drop and kids creep closer, leaning in, wanting more. It is those moments of wonder at the Northern Alberta International Children’s Festival that motivate us and our volunteers, sponsors and donors each year. We know that those sparks of engagement lead to a lifetime of creativity. Countless studies have shown that early exposure to the arts results in a wealth of positive effects; including, the development of problem-solving and critical thinking skills. The proof truly is in the faces of the kids who come to the Festival—teachers and parents have seen it happen again and again; moments of learning, of creative expression and of cultural understanding. With 32 years of experience, we can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that the hard work that goes into producing this Festival—and the cultural exchanges that often take two or three years to arrange— are worth it. For our audiences, this is an inspirational opportunity like no other. Our goal is to keep the Festival accessible to all. This is why outreach initiatives such as Project Smile have become an integral part of the Children’s Festival. Travelling to hospitals and care facilities to share that sense of wonder with kids who would otherwise not be able to come to the Festival, and who need that spark the most, has become a cherished part of what we do each year. While the kids are watching the shows, the Festival team will be watching for the wonder in their eyes… and only then will we know that we’ve done our job. This truly is “The Most WONDERful Time of the Year!”

After saving Prince Eric from drowning in the ocean waters, her heart floods with affection and she becomes determined to walk at his side. Giving up everything she knows to be part of his world, this enchanting production of the beloved fairy tale shimmers in the accomplished hands of St. Albert Children’s Theatre. “... St. Albert Children’s Theatre cast really deliver the goods... their youthful energy strikes a spark and makes us smile... it is pure theatre, the kind with a lot of heart that rouses the audience to a standing ovation.” - Anna Borowiecki, St. Albert Gazette Curriculum Connections: music appreciation, musical expression, acting, movement, storytelling, creative expression, communication, attentive viewing and listening.

It’s Valerie’s birthday and her brother can’t figure out what to get her. Wheelchair-bound, Valerie moves strangely—she doesn’t walk, nor does she speak, so her brother is at a loss… until he dreams of her dancing. The Snail’s Shadow is a tribute to those bodies that move differently. Through a mixture of shadows, projections and movement this poignant tale explores the unfamiliar and finds beauty. This production fosters the kind of understanding about differences that help create a more tolerant world. Curriculum Connections: theatre, dance, storytelling, acting, creative expression, communication, exploring thoughts, ideas and emotions and attentive listening and viewing.

Welcome to ZooZoo—a wondrous world where penguins compete in musical chairs, antelopes are snobbish waiters and hippos have insomnia. Sporting larger-than-life costumes, the artists of Imago Theatre have created a series of vignettes that, together, become an extraordinary animal adventure and a thrilling theatre experience for young audiences. With polar bears climbing the stairs of the theatre and inch-worms doing handstands, this show will have your heart bursting with delight.

Splash‘N Boots radiate a frenetic, kinetic energy that is absolutely infectious. A long-standing Children’s Festival favourite, you may have seen these dancing-singing songsters lighting up Treehouse TV with their music video “For the Love of Dance” or as hosts on the show Roll Play. Named the Canadian Children’s Group of the Year at the 2012 SiriusXM Indie Awards this year and packing in over 200 shows a year from coast to coast and around the world, and just releasing their sixth CD, Coconuts Don’t Fall Far From the Tree, this dynamic duo is simply fun-tastic and un-missable.
