The Children’s Festival is a significant multicultural event in Australia.

It is unique in its celebration of cultural diversity with a spectacular day-long program of entertainment presented by over 30 groups from different cultural backgrounds. Thousands of children and their families participate in the day’s activities.

Under the motto “Play Together and Live in Harmony”, the Children’s Festival is a day for everyone but especially for children to get together in a multicultural environment to have fun, join in creative activities and share those new experiences with each other.

The year, 2019, marks the 21st Anniversary of our organisation and we are anxiously looking forward to even greater success at this year’s events. Following our successful Children’s Festival in the City of Sydney on Sunday 10th of March, 2019, our 34th Children’s Festival will be held on Sunday 25th of August in Koshigaya Park, Campbelltown and our 35th Children’s Festival will be held in Paul Keating Park, Bankstown, from 11 am to 6 pm.
