The cold winter weather hasn’t put a chill on plans for Oakville’s newest summer festival. After an incredibly successful inaugural event that drew 15,000 people to Coronation Park, the Oakville Children’s Festival will return on Sunday, July 19, 2015, with even more opportunities for fun and learning.
“Celebrating art and culture is immensely important in our community,” said Oakville Mayor Rob Burton. “Council and I are pleased that so many families enjoyed our first ever Oakville Children’s Festival. We hope to make this year’s festivities even more vibrant.”
Oakville’s beautiful lakeside park will once again be transformed into an arts and culture playground for kids of all ages with free live performances and fun events to engage young imaginations and foster creativity.
A farmers’ market featuring fresh, locally grown produce will debut at this year’s festival to complement the trendy food truck menu options. In addition to the family-friendly programs and activities, a limited number of local artisan vendors will be invited to showcase their unique creations onsite. Interested vendors (artisans, food trucks and farmers’ market) can download the application forms from the Oakville Children’s Festival page.
The deadline to apply is Wednesday, April 15, 2015.
