The event is targeted for children aged 3 to 12 years and will turn the Eastern foreshore into a colourful playground. Families are all encouraged to participate, learn and use their imagination.

This year's Mandurah Children's Festival will be more inclusive by providing the following:

Changing Places (located behind the Visitor's Centre)
Drop off and pick up zone (located in the rotunda car park near the toilet block)
Inclusive activities
Auslan interpreter at the main stage
Sensory rest stop (located opposite the rotunda at the centre of the foreshore). This is aimed at those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of the Festival.

There will also be a variety of food stalls at this event with something for everyone.

And so as not to forget the adults, they will have some market stalls and these will showcase a variety of different products for both adults and children.
