Children’s Week Picnic

Kick back on the grass with your hamper of goodies and enjoy a free line up of music and family entertainment, lawn games and kids’ activities at Wyndham City’s FREE Children’s Week Picnic

Set in the beautiful surrounds of Werribee Park, this year’s event will feature a performance by your favourite characters from Despicable Me 3, music, food trucks and puppet-making workshops.

Activities will be spread across four zones, with a live stage program, a ‘come and try’ Healthy and Active area, a new Arts Experience Zone and a Chill Out Zone.

Kids can try their hand at lawn games, hip hop, sports activities and circus skills, create their very own puppet with Trash Puppets, trade a pre-loved toy at the Toy Swap or enjoy a ride on the carousel.
