Established in 2014, the Cairns Children's Festival is a two-day celebration for children aged 12 and under, and their adults. Held annually in May, the festival aims to put our youngest creatives in the spotlight whilst also creating a safe and fun environment for families to explore, create and imagine. There are workshops, concerts and hands-on activities as well as roving entertainment and delicious food. A lot of the activities are free and fun for the entire family, with select events ticketed at an affordable price. Events are held across multiple locations, and in the lead-up to the event, Council hosts a number of engagement workshops and opportunities where children can contribute to installations and engage with creative projects in a productive manner.
