Muddy Hands Festival 2023

November 18, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


The Muddy Hands Festival is back for 2023! We are excited to bring this family favourite back to the picturesque Kent Street Weir in Wilson in November 2023. 🌳

The Muddy Hands Festival is an event to encourage children and families to enjoy playing outdoors and being among nature. Through unstructured messy play we aim to engage children’s curiosity, letting them choose their own path with immersive experiences, hands on learning and a greater understanding on how to co-exist on this planet with local flora, fauna, and the natural environment.  🌿🌞🌸🦋🐛

This free event features plenty of have a go activities aimed at children aged 1 – 16 (though of course all are welcome!)
