We're very excited about The Infants' Home's first Arts Festival, to be held on Sunday October 21 2018, from 10am - 2pm.

We have a variety of attractions, entertainment and food stalls booked, including a petting zoo, face painting, magic show, Indigenous dance demonstration, coffee cart, cake stall, sausage sizzle, gelato and food trucks.

Arts, crafts and more!

There will be a range of fun and interesting art activities for children and families to get involved in, which will be run by our service areas as follows:

Each of the Houses and our Family Day Care service will also display children's artworks and group projects that they have been working on this year, focusing on the theme of 'Our World, Our Voices'.

To help with the festival's activities and stalls, we will request that parents and carers bring in items. Your involvement will help make our festival great. Please see how you can help below.

We hope you will join us on the day!
