Lions and tigers and bears and…unicorns and bearded dragons? Oh my! The Getty Center's free daylong family festival explores the fantastic animals, real and imagined, who roam the Getty Center, inspired by the exhibition The Book of Beasts: The Bestiary in the Medieval World.

Art workshops include creating blinged up wings and a unicorn headress. Kids can get wild face paint and take photos with life sized animal sculptures.

Performances include live animal presentations with Conservation Ambassadors, Indian classical dance from Rangoli Dance Company, and a circus themed puppet show from Bob Barker Marionette Theater.
