Woodford Folk Festival and their Children’s Festival
Music festivals often leave out the littlest members of our families, which has always been a shame. Kids love music and events like the Woodford Folk Festival can create an unforgettable atmosphere.
Woodford Folk Festival have looked to change this with their Children’s Festival. Here’s what you need to know.
What’s the Children’s Festival?
The Woodford Folk Festival’s Childrens Festival is designed for children aged between six months and 12 years. Entry is FREE with any valid festival ticket. 2019/2020 heralds the 34th year of the Children’s Festival – a festival within a festival designed to delight families.
Once inside the Children’s Festival, your children will be invited to take part in a wide range of activities. They’ll explore and experiment with arts and crafts, they’ll do circus workshops and they’ll have a go at belly dancing! Kids at Woodford Folk Festival will also learn all about insects and native wildlife while taking part in explorative musical techniques. Excitingly, kids will now also be invited to learn local Indigenous language.
Children are allowed in this space during the day EVERY DAY. Some activities are very quick and some are as long as four hours – meaning they’ll be entertained all day long!
What are the costs?
Camping at Woodford Folk Festival is only $29 for kids under 12 (kids under five are free) so this is definitely a very affordable option for families interested in music and culture. Check here for ticketing information.
Are there suitable facilities?
There are some food outlets located within the Children’s Festival precinct and feeding and changing facilities for babies and small children are also available.
Woodford Folk Festival always runs over the New Year period. You can find more information, including ticketing, at this link.
