Little Fairgrounds is a designated festival within a festival, just for kids. Whilst Fairgrounds strives to inflame the passion of music lovers, it also aspires to feed the fertile minds of our little rockers. 

Children, you can experience the fun and excitement of the vibrant circus area, challenge your friends in the paper plane flying competition, pick up a musical instrument and jam in a band or play on our tyre swings and playground. If you still have energy to burn, head on over to the Little Fairgrounds Sports Field and race your friends in one of the many field games on offer. Be entertained at the Little Fairgrounds Stage with live music, performers, magic shows and book readings from our very special guests. Show your creative side with craft activities, get your festival face on with our team of face painters, have a giant slide-ride and jump, jump, jump around on the big things to bounce on! Family movies will be screened in the Little Fairgrounds Marquee from 7.30pm – 10.30pm on both evenings.

Little Fairgrounds also offers a parents room and child minding services to keep everyone happily entertained.
