On Sunday 4th August 2019, head down to the iconic Lilac Hill grounds from 10am with your family and friends and enjoy the biggest program of family fun yet!
Positioned on the water's edge at the iconic Lilac Hill grounds, it's the prime spot to cheer on the competitors as they speed on by! Off the water, this year's festival program is the biggest yet, with a bumper program of FREE fun for the whole family.
Enjoy a jam-packed program of live entertainment on The Movida Estate Main Stage with tunes by the Jonny Taylor band, the slapstick and acrobatic feats of the Splat! Games Show, silky smooth dance moves from Perth's favourite street performer Mickey J and interactive fun with Rock 'n' Toddle.
The Perth Airport Fun Zone will be a mecca for kids young and old. It will be packed with vintage fair rides, inflatable slides and ninja challenges, interactive games and a ride on train, plus activities from Scitech, Native Animal Rescue, Whiteman Park, Mundaring Arts Centre, Swan Active Midland and Thinking Green.
Those with a green thumb will love the Midland Gate Garden Party, where you can plant and decorate your very own sweet pot plant and meet the face painting Freedom Fairies.
For those looking for a more relaxed vibes, the Avon Ridge Retreat will provide a little slice of serenity by the river, with luxurious massages and other secret treats.
Plus you can meander through bountiful stalls at The Vintage Collective Markets, which will this year also include their iconic pinup parade and a display of vintage vehicles and caravans to swoon over!
When the hunger pangs hit, the delicious street food fare from the food truck pop up will be on hand to fix you up while you sit and take in the festival atmosphere from the lounge and dining space.
Make sure to bring a picnic rug and soak up the thrills and excitement as the Avon Descent competitors zoom past in their quest for victory!
There's free parking opposite the site and free shuttle buses from Guildford Train Station and Midland Gate all day.
The Avon Descent Festival is proudly supported by Lotterywest, Perth Airport, Midland Gate, Movida Estate, Avon Ridge Estate, EMRC and The Vintage Collective Markets.
