Sponsored byDowneaster_Logo_2017

The Children’s Series has grown dramatically in recent years, and these popular family events now average over 500 attendees per week.  The host site, the Rotary Arts Pavilion is located in Henry Law Park, and is footsteps away from the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire, the City’s Indoor Swimming Pool, and the playground and grassy riverside expanse at Henry Law Park itself.  All of this makes for an extremely enjoyable and fun-filled day for the entire family right in downtown Dover.  Each week, the Children’s Series features a different performance, including music, dancing, puppeteers, jugglers and magicians. Below is the 2018 summer lineup:
