Early evening entertainment, a pirate theme and more flexible ticketing options will be features of this year’s Fun4Kids Festival.

The dates for the 19th Fun4Kids Festival were officially announced on March 17 by Warrnambool Mayor Cr Kylie Gaston.

“Fun4Kids will run from Wednesday, July 5 to Sunday, July 9, which is the first week of the school holidays,” Cr Gaston said.

“And on each of those days the festival will stay open to 7pm, giving parents who are still working greater opportunity to enjoy the festival with their kids.

“It’s a more family-friendly program and so too are the ticketing options.

“People can choose either one, two or five-day passes which will also provide access or discounts to other family-friendly venues within the Warrnambool region.

“And we are confident that kids will really embrace the pirate theme.”

Further details on the program including key performers and entertainment zones will be announced in coming weeks, with tickets going in sale in April.

The festival will continue to highlight Warrnambool and the Great South Coast as a great year-round venue.

“We want the festival to continue to invigorate the city at what was a traditionally quiet time of year,” Cr Gaston said.

“This year Council’s events team has been fine-tuning the program in recognition of the fact that families are seeking flexibility in choosing how to spend time while they are on holiday.

“But we’ve made sure we retain the sense of excitement and wonder that has always been a part of Fun4Kids.”
