The Herndon Parks and Recreation Department strives to keep the arts alive and well in Herndon and inspire the enjoyment of the arts in children. We offer live performances, some shows are designed just for kids and others are great for the whole family. In addition, we host multiple special events, which highlight some of the best national, regional and local talent. Cost per show is $4 in advance or $5 at the door. Children under the age of one are free. Adults and children ages 1+ need tickets. Please print your receipt to use as your ticket.
