Día del Niño takes place virtually througout April

Posted

Throughout April, a number of local cultural institutions will be hosting Día del Niño: Celebrating All Children events. The events — some virtual, some in-person — are being offered as a partnership between the Mexican Cultural Center and Telemundo Denver.

“We are overjoyed to have the opportunity to once again bring the Children’s Day Celebration to our community this year, as unfortunately, we had to cancel the 2020 celebration due to the pandemic,” said Ericka Hernandez, program director of the Mexican Cultural Center, in a news release. “The Mexican Cultural Center is honored to be able to bring this celebration virtually this year with the colossal support of our cultural partners. We love the idea of being able to innovate and reinvent ourselves to make sure we continue to celebrate our youth and children.”

Between April 1 and April 30, a variety of free educational videos and activities will be available for children and families. These videos and activities will be offered by the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, Denver Art Museum, Denver Zoo, Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Denver Botanic Gardens, Clyfford Still Museum, Denver Public Library, History Colorado and Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.

They will be accessible through Acceso Total on Telemundo Denver, Telemundo Denver Landing Page and the Mexican Cultural Center’s Facebook Event Page.

To learn about the various activities being offered, visit www.mccdenver.org. The website has information about some of the activities being offered, and there is a link to the organization’s Facebook page where people can stay up-to-date on the Día del Niño: Celebrating All Children events.

Tickets can be reserved online by visiting the above-mentioned institutions’ websites.

The Mexican Cultural Center will also be collaborating with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and EDUCA from Denver Public Schools to create a virtual and interactive contest.
