first of three summer concerts designed for kids 6 and under

Berkeley, California (Friday, May 31, 2019) - Come bring your kids to our parks this summer for a free concert series designed for young children and their families.  

This concert series, which we've called KidChella, was created to be more intimate and accessible to children 6 and under.

The music ranges from reggae and rock-and-roll to calypso and sing-alongs. Each concert will also have an interactive children's performance, a bubble station, and face-painting.
