DPS Shakespeare Festival
The DPS Shakespeare Festival is the oldest and largest student Shakespeare festival in the country, and perhaps the world, and includes thousands of students and teachers from schools all across the region.
The day-long Shakespeare Festival, held in downtown Denver, provides a forum for students from Kindergarten through 12th grade to perform sonnets and scenes from the works of Shakespeare, as well as to demonstrate dance, vocal and instrumental music of Shakespeare’s time. The Festival will kick off with opening ceremonies followed by a parade to the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Performances throughout the day will be held on multiple stages.
The nationally recognized festival is one of only two sites to have received the coveted Folgers Library Shakespeare Stewardship Award.
