Follow the vibrant and welcoming peace banners (designed by local secondary students last year) to the annual Family Fun Day.

The Family Fun Day is jam packed with lots of fun things to do, whether you're up for something new or you're looking to brush up on some old skills. 

You can enjoy great performers showcasing their talents on the stage and be wowed by specially trained dogs doing some amazing tricks.

Children and families can enjoy interacting with reptiles and farm animals, get creative at one of the workshops or join in and try their skills at some fun activities and games.

There will also be everyone’s festival favourites – a jumping castle, face painter and food stalls.

Say hello to some of your friendly local service providers: Link Health and Community, Power Neighbourhood House, Amaroo Neighbourhood House, Public Tenants Association, Ashwood College Permaculture Food Garden, Batesford Hub and more. 

The full stage program for the day will be available shortly.
