Play! A WUCF Salute to Fred Rogers

Saturday, April 15, 2023 9 a.m. to noon

FREE! Drop in and play, it’s your job today!

The front yard at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts will be filled with yard games including the all-new Donkey Hodie: A Hee-Hawesome Adventure. The playscape is an unstructured, free experience and encourages families to engage with each other, because just like Fred Rogers said, “play is serious learning.”

This event is held in partnership with WUCF as part of their 10th anniversary celebrations.

Each spring, UCF hosts a large-scale celebration of creativity at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. This year, UCF Celebrates the Arts explores the intersection of arts and technology, and showcases our students, faculty and alumni through dance, concerts, cabaret, lectures and discussions, film, chamber music, family-friendly events, visual arts and more. The festival has events and exhibits for all ages and interests, and with half of the events being free, is an ideal opportunity to try something new. Fantastic possibilities lie ahead at UCF Celebrates the Arts, April 2-15 at Dr. Phillips Center! Learn more at
