Greater Dandenong Children's Festival, 21 September to 6 October 2019

Greater Dandenong Children's Festival, 21 September to 6 October 2019

Now in its eighth year the annual City of Greater Dandenong Children’s Festival is celebrating a space theme.

Families are invited to get their spacesuits ready as you journey into this year's exciting intergalactic adventure over the school holidays. Together we'll embark on our very own two week outer space exploration these school holidays with a series of free and low cost events happening across the city from 21 September to 6 October. The festival features exciting and interactive programs, activities, performances, workshops, exhibitions and events for the whole family.

The headline event of the Children’s Festival is the Little Day Out, a free family event where everybody is encouraged to let their imaginations run wild as you blast off into outer space. Little Day Out is on Sunday 6 October, from 11am-4pm, at Noble Park’s Ross Reserve. 

IKEA are running a number of events in support of the 2019 Greater Dandenong Children’s Festival.
