Cairns Children's Festival

In May each year the entire Tanks Arts Centre site will become a wonderland of discovery, creativity and play for children aged between 4 and 12 years. There are workshops, concerns and hands-on activities as well as roving entertainers and delicious food.

Most of the day is free family fun, with some events ticketed at an affordable price.

In the lead-up to the event, Council will host a number of school engagement workshops and opportunities in the Tinkering Tank where students will contribute to installations and engage with the project in a creative manner.
