The Woodruff Arts Center in Midtown has announced its upcoming Family Fun Festival, which will take place on the Woodruff campus June 10 at 1 p.m. as part of the Family Fun at The Woodruff Arts Center initiative.

The free event will feature family-oriented programming led by the Alliance Theatre, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and High Museum of Art, including free performances of the Alliance’s production of “Winnie-the-Pooh” at 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Other Winnie-the-Pooh-inspired Alliance activities include: Catch the Heffalump Acting Obstacle Course, Hunny Corn Hole, Costume Making – 100 Acre Ears, Eeyore’s Birthday Dance Party, creative movement workshops, Piglet’s Worry-Free Family Yoga, Pooh’s Poetry Corner and Kanga and Roo’s Family Storytimes.

The orchestra will host an instrument petting zoo, which provides those in attendance with an opportunity to try out different instruments of the orchestra. In addition, it will be presenting an instrument-making station where attendees can make their very own African talking drums, as well as musical storytimes and music and movement workshops. The orchestra’s Music Discovery Zone, a space designed to encourage self-guided play with hands-on instruments, will be open and will feature several interactive workshops over the course of the afternoon.

The High will also be free to attendees through its Second Sunday program, offering free admission for all visitors and special programming on the second Sunday of each month. Special activities include “Winnie-the-Pooh” storytimes to accompany the High’s “Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic” exhibition, Meet the Owl with the Chattahoochee Nature Center, Pooh’s picnic basket demonstrations, still-life drawing, art-making workshops and more.
