Juvenalia is a fair for family and school fun. A major recreational-educational event to enjoy with your family or classmates. Aimed at families with children aged 0 to 12 and schools, it aims to create a space for interaction with high quality educational shows and activities to foster the intellectual, emotional, social, and ethical development of children.
The fair will include a new area this year, Pausanias, which will introduce members of the public to the fascinating world of Archaeology through a series of fun workshops.
The event will also feature other areas that proved successful at past editions, including the different plazas dedicated to Heroes, Science, Sports, Technology and Food, an Urbanpark focusing on urban recreation, as well as other spaces especially designed for babies and parents.
The programme aimed at families includes a section developed by the Association of Wellbeing and Development (ABD), with fun activities for parents and children aged 0-3, and 3-12, to stimulate emotional bonding. There is also a circuit of activities for the whole family, which includes cooking workshops, crafts, family games, a sports gymkhana, family photos, performances by beloved characters... As part of the Bebeteca space, Sleepa will be holding workshops related with exercise post partum, how to care for newborns, baby massage, and talks about the first few months of life. Another interesting activity will be available from La Leche League, an organisation that will be providing information about breastfeeding through Memo Mamíferos (a memory game with images of mammals), Mammal bookmarks (children can colour and decorate bookmarks), and a Story about breastfeeding.
There will also be all kinds of games, from technological to classic ones; decorating and craft activities; face painting; workshops; storytelling; road safety through gymkhanas, circuits, talks, workshops, police dog and fire-fighter demonstrations; activities based around science; and, of course, sport.
The character Peppa Pig will once again have her own space at the fair, Peppa Pig Universe, where characters from the popular children's series will entertain with their performances.
Finally, for the first time this year, Princess Holly and the elf Ben, from the TV series Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom, will also be present.
