  Stay tuned as the Puzzle Pieces unfold on a living breathing piece of Art: KIDabra 2020
In the Meantime enjoy the Schedule from KIDabra 2019
Welcome to a special place! A place to be Inspired, Challenged, and Motivated. Welcome to KIDabra!  At the Conference, you'll meet the New as well as Foundational Voices of KIDabra and The KIDshow World! Different from most conventions, at KIDabra Conference our speakers are asked to bring a new, fresh, original talk each time they appear, as we explore performance and creating great shows from every angle.
This approach helps make each of our KIDabra gatherings, a unique, handmade,
once in a lifetime "Happening" Just for You!        


Come Early,

See The Shows!

The Atlanta Area is filled with a stunning selection of Shows and Attractions!
