The Youth and Family Showcase at APAP is a curated collection of the best family friendly productions touring today. Each showcasing artists is evaluated on their individual quality and how they fit into the showcase as a whole. Presenters experience each showcase as it was meant to be, with kids in the audience.

Conference Overview

The Youth and Family Showcase began in 2015 by presenters, agents, managers, and artists wanting to create an atmosphere for family friendly artists to showcase their best yearly at APAP in New York City. This showcase always takes place off-site so kids can be in the audience!

Morning beverages and snacks are provided for the presenters. Over 160 presenters attended the Youth and Family Showcase in 2019.
