The next big thing in family fun: The Kidtopia Festival!


There’s fetes, there’s fairs, and then there’s festivals…the ultimate in family fun! And this year the Kidtopia Festival is taking family entertainment to the next level with their festival extravaganza at Parramatta Park. Here’s a taste of all the adventures you can expect from a day at the festival!

Heading to a family festival can be the perfect day out, and if you choose an event that has something for every member of the family, from your littlest bub to grown ups and grandma, you can enjoy a whole day of activities that please everybody. Finding the perfect festival isn’t as easy as it seems, but some are sure bets for an amazing day – such as Kidtopia Festival at Parramatta Park, which is back for a second year.

Festival Director Cory Watson says this year’s event will be bigger and better than the last, with a program that’s full of excitement for all the whole family. “We’re going all out with this year’s Festival. More amusement rides, an extra stage in La Petite Grande for incredible live performances and bigger and better world-class entertainment and interactive experiences.”
