Fringe World Festival - Fringe Kids

FRINGE WORLD Festival is back! The 2020 FRINGE WORLD Festival is on from 17 January to 16 February. Not only is the FRINGE WORLD Festival WA’s largest annual event it is family-friendly with tones of free and ticketed events to keep the kids entertained for the rest of the school holidays and beyond!

The Woodside Pleasure Garden in Northbridge is home to the biggest range of entertainment during Fringe World, with lots of FREE outdoor activities happening from 1pm. FRINGE WORLD has put together an awesome ‘Fringe Kids Guide‘, making it easy to find kid-friendly events, paper copies are available at the venue.

FRINGE WORLD Mermaids Splash Zone

The Splash Zone is your chance to get up and close to a ‘real-life Mermaid’, just be careful they like to splash!

The day we visited, there was a huge amount of kids wanting to high five the mermaids underwater, the Mermaids were great and made sure all the kids rotated and nobody missed out.

The Splash Zone runs for approximately 30 minutes, session times vary, click here for more information.

Street performers come in all shapes and sizes, there are street artists, circus performers, magicians, musicians, daredevils and acrobats to name a few.

We were able to catch the ABSURDLY KIDS Doorway Cabaret show which had both kids and adults in stitches!

Buskers are free to watch, though you are encouraged to ‘pay as you feel’. Family budgets can be tough, it depends on what you can afford – I like to have some gold coins and $5 notes handy.

Ticketed Shows

Read our reviews on A Small Space and PreHysterical. The kids and I went along to see PreHysterical which was great, my teen was laughing away at the adult jokes, my daughter loved the acrobatics and my toddlers loved the soundtrack!

We are also keen on going to see Game ON 2.0 – sounds like a great show for video game lovers!
