Travel the world without leaving LA at the Big World Fun family series on Saturday mornings in July and August at Ford Theatres.

Mama Earth is so excited to offer pre-show art activities for the Ford Theatres‘ Big World Fun family series that takes place on Saturday mornings at 10:00 AM in July and August. These hour-long music and dance performances are for children ages 4 to 12 and their families. Travel the world without leaving LA, as groups representing music and dance from Mexico, the Philippines, Japan and more enchant and delight. Bring the whole family!

Come early to explore wild animals, get busy with craft activities and grab a bite before the show.

The County of Los Angeles, Department of Parks & Recreation is pleased to bring its Nature in Your Backyard program back to the Ford’s entryway gardens before every Big World Fun show. This program educates families about the plants and animals that are native to southern California. The Natural Areas Division uses native live animal ambassadors such as birds of prey, mammals, reptiles and amphibians to teach conservation and preservation of the important and rapidly shrinking wildlife habitats in Los Angeles County.

Each Saturday, join us at 9am before each show for quick and fun art activities.
