Little Day Out

17 July

Ipswich’s signature children’s contemporary music and arts festival is little by name but BIG on fun. With a focus on sustainability, Little Day Out is bursting with music, hands-on art experiences, food and roving entertainment.

Regurgitator’s POGOGO show headlines the main stage with their witty, silly attitude and musical mash-up of funk, pop and rock.

Feisty trio Babushka want to break rules, sing killer tunes and show the next generation how to be rascals, radicals and ratbags. Prepare to spike your mohawk and fight for your right to party!

The young and young at heart are invited to sing, dance, create and play! Seedling planting, boomerang painting, tiny tots zone and a silent disco are all part of the Little Day Out experience.

Please note that Little Day Out is a pet free zone, please leave your furry friends at home.
