This year's Festival on the Green will take place on Sunday May 5, at St Ives Village Green , from 10.00am to 4.00pm. The event, which is organised annually by Ku-Ring-Gai Council , is a truly family-friendly experience, complete with entertainment, rides and activities that should keep family members of all ages pretty happy. Plus, it's all free.

Headlining the entertainment schedule in 2013 is the Go Deigo Go Live Show (which you can catch at 11.30am and 1.30pm) and kids even have the chance to meet Diego at 12.35pm and 2.35pm. Also headlining will be Brophy Aerial Theatre Company 's performance of Alice in Wonderland (an aerial acrobatic show which you can catch at 12.05pm and 2.00pm). Other shows on the main stage include a whole lot of school bands and other local acts.

Kids should look out for the roving entertainers, who will be around all day, and head over to the Kids Zone, which will offer face-painting, inflatable rides and an animal farm. A big colourful tent will also be hosting circus workshops, where children can learn how to hoola-hoop, walk on stilts and even juggle. Other activities available will include free mini train rides, amusement rides, a Stealers baseball batting cage and demonstrations from Northern Suburbs Dog Training .

If you need to take a break from all of this action, there will be a whole lot of stalls to browse too. They will be selling food and wine, art and craft, jewellery, clothing and homewares. There will also be community and council information stalls, with a full list accessible here .

Unfortunately, parking at St Ives Village Green is limited, so Ku-Ring-Gai Council recommends utilising the free shuttle bus that will be operating from Gordon Station (a timetable can be downloaded here ). The bus will also be stopping at the Heritage Craft Fair at St Ives Showground, which is an event that takes place on the first Sunday of each month, so you might consider squeezing in two events on the one day.
