Segerstrom Center for the Arts invites you to celebrate Spring at its first virtual Spring Carnival on Sunday, May 17. Enjoy fun, food and crafts, all accessed virtually on scfta.org/springcarnival – from the comfort of your own home. And admission is FREE to the Center’s Spring Carnival.
In the days leading up to the carnival, they invite you to join the fun with a series of Instagram challenges. Each challenge hints at an activity that will be included with the May 17 carnival package and is a new way to get creative at home.
There’s something for everyone, from cooking up your version of the perfect carnival snack to inventing your own game with materials you can find around your house. With a little imagination, that cardboard box, pool noodle, and loose tennis balls in your garage are a never-before-seen game waiting to happen—and they want to share your creations with fellow virtual carnival-goers!
Post your video or photo and tag them on Instagram using @segerstromarts for the chance to get your carnival creation featured on their stories!
Made entirely digital, they’ll be providing everything you need to enjoy your visit, down to the festive carnival atmosphere. Set the mood by listening to their upbeat playlist, then dive into one of our many special activities created by their Center carni staff and local artists. Lovers of carnival food, head to the kitchen, and follow their tutorial to whip up your own county fair-themed treat. While snacking, join them on the virtual Argyros Plaza and enjoy the fun.
Kids and kids-at-heart can find all the eggs hidden by a mystery visitor on the virtual treasure hunt! Segerstrom Center’s Spring Carnival can be accessed directly through the Center’s website, scfta.org/springcarnival
The Spring Carnival includes family-friendly activities with easy instructional videos. Some of the fun includes:
- Making a playful puppet
- Cooking up your favorite carnival treats in your own kitchen
- Making art with items found at home
- Recreating carnival games
- Sensory-Friendly scratch-and-sniff painting
- Downloadable print-out coloring pages
There will also be plenty of special performances, including a storyteller from the Costa Mesa/Donald Dungan Library and circus entertainment from Circo Etereo. Their talented performers will even show you some magic tricks to try at home and amaze your friends! For those looking for a challenge, collect all the hidden eggs during a virtual treasure hunt on the Julianne and George Argyros Plaza.
