During Kids Euro Festival, families come join us for this special presentation of a fun movie featuring those lovable Finnish Moomins.

Based on the book Moominsummer Madness by Tove Jansson, the movie tells the story of a long, hot summer in Moomin Valley. All of the creatures are becoming bored — until a volcanic eruption causes a huge flood! As the Moomin family seeks refuge, they discover an abandoned, floating house. However, it’s not really a house, and it’s certainly not abandoned. View trailer.

Kids Euro Festival is a two-week long festival of European arts and culture that presents free activities to the D.C.-metro-area families.
