Roots Series – 2017
San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum is excited to present the Roots Series as part of the Museum’s mission to celebrate and educate children and families about world cultures. Roots programs highlight the diverse cultural traditions of a community represented in San Diego County.
This free program features cultural performances, crafts, costumes, and other activities to showcase the culture’s rich art and history. Entertainment – often by children performers – can include storytelling, music, dance or puppetry. During the program month, the Global Village and Marketplace exhibit is transformed to reflect the culture, along with books and costumes. Additionally, craft and storytime will carry the theme of the celebrated culture with a different book and craft each week of that month.
Roots events are held on the third Saturday of alternating months from 2-4pm. Free admission begins at 1:45pm on the specified program date.
