Green light for Moreton Kids Festival

Posted: 9am 04 Sep 2020

Moreton Kids Festival is Good to Go and set to transform Pine Rivers Park into the ultimate (COVID Safe) kids’ world on October 18.

With a Queensland Health-approved COVID Safe plan, the event will have five worlds of fun plus a visit from a very special British guest.

Returning for its fourth year, Moreton Kids Festival is committed to safely providing fun for kids of all ages. The KidsFest event team has worked hard to ensure the event’s COVID Safe plan was approved in time for the tickets to go on sale on September 4.

Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT) CEO Shane Newcombe says: “we have confirmed some exciting activities and workshops, that are all COVID Safe and can’t wait to see all the smiling faces enjoying the festival fun in a year that hasn’t been much fun for the kids.

“The festival is full of fun whilst ensuring the safety of all the children, their families, event staff and volunteers that walk through the gates on October 18,” Mr Newcombe explained.

Program packed with fun

Moreton Bay Regional Mayor Peter Flannery says this year may look a little different to the previous three festivals but with the packed program of fun, it will be a day out for the whole family that won’t disappoint.

“Kids Fest is always one of the biggest events on the local calendar, but this year it takes on a whole new importance. We've all felt the impacts of coronavirus, especially our kids who've been having to learn to play inside or distanced from their friends,” he says.

“This year's event is bursting back onto the events scene bigger and better than ever, with fun and entertainment everywhere you look in Pine Rivers Park. We have five interactive zones to enjoy, offering activities for kids of all ages and interests.”

The five worlds of fun are back this year, so whether your kid is artsy, sporty, scientific, adventurous, techy or loves nature we’ve got them covered at this year’s KidsFest.

There’ll be a program full of live stage shows, interactive workshops, rides, food trucks and market stalls. KidsFest has something for everyone.”

There will be live entertainment throughout the day on the Strathpine Centre Main Stage, including Peppa and George Pig who will perform two live shows.
