Australia's first STEAM Carnival is coming to Canning Showgrounds for a one-day extravaganza on Saturday, 8th December 2018. Get ready to undertake a fantastic journey across time and space, to the edges of the universe, past the limits of human imagination!

Conceptualised in Los Angeles, the City of Canning is pleased to be hosting, in partnership with Two Bit Circus, STEAM Carnival.

Two Bit Circus is a non-profit educational organisation designed to cultivate the next generation of inventors, advance environmental stewardship and spur community engagement.

STEAM Carnival is a social amusement platform for all ages which uses technology infused games and immersive hands-on experiences that leverage people's passion for music, fashion and games to engage them in science, technology, engineering, arts and maths.

Developed in Los Angeles and making their debut appearance in Australia are ten giant tech games engineered by Two Bit Circus and tweaked here in Australia. Think drones, lasers, wacky arcade games and so much more!


Throughout the day, you and your family can enjoy hours of awesome STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) entertainment including:

  • Inspiring talks from key leaders in their field

  • Hands-on workshops designed to test and inspire

  • Exhibits by local business, clubs, universities and schools with STEAM projects

  • Visual storytellers and performers including costumed characters and roving carnival-spirited acts

  • The Lunar Sensation Big Top filled with exciting circus performers and explosive shows from our partners at Scitech!

  • Games and interactive experiences

  • To keep you fueled all day long, drop by the G'Astronomy Food Village, filled with tasty delights and themed eats!

  • To quench your thirst, the 'Science on Tap' container bar will open from 4pm to 9pm. Enjoy premium beer, wine and cider or opt for Crafted Events' atmospheric cocktails with liquid nitrogen (don't worry, it's 100% organic).
