Cairns Children's Festival - Held annually in May
A celebration of fun and creativity for children aged 12 years and under!

Important Information: Please note that the 2020 Cairns Children's Festival has been cancelled.

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.

Most of the day is free family fun, 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.
