Family Fun For Everyone: At The Aventura Arts & Cultural Center

February 16, 2023

Experience the wonder and excitement of live theater as children’s favorite storybook characters come to thrilling life on stage. An affordable way to introduce youngsters to the magic of musical theater, these family-friendly shows bring families together, spark creativity and engage the imagination as only live theater can.

The Staff at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center recommend planning your travel so that you arrive at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center no later than 45-60 minutes before show time. You should then budget about 15 minutes to park, walk to the theater and clear security. Please be advised that due to enhanced security measures they are asking all ticket holders to arrive early and travel light.

Arriving early also gives you time to relax and enjoy the pre-theater experience. Mingle with friends, enjoy food and drink specials up to 60 minutes prior to the show and settle in. Seating areas open 30 minutes prior to show time.

While going to the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center is certainly a special occasion, there is no required dress code. Some guests enjoy dressing up and making a special night of it and you can too, but most of all we want their guests to be comfortable.
