Arts and culture celebration returns to Coronation Park on July 10, 2016

“Turn the radio on, turn the radio up” because Lisa Loeb will be “singing her songs” at the Oakville Children’s Festival on Sunday, July 10, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Coronation Park. Festival guests can expect fun and catchy kids’ tunes, as well as a few classics from the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter turned children’s performer.

In addition to Lisa Loeb, the third annual Children’s Festival will also feature performances by the Big Nazo, FiddleFire, CORPUS’ Camping Royale, Gadfly Urban Street Dance Battle, Sing Along Tim and the Pacifiers, and magicians Ray Chance and Mike D’Urzo.

“It is such a pleasure to see this tremendous event offered to all Oakville families free of charge,” Mayor Rob Burton said. “I look forward to seeing you in July, as Coronation Park transforms into an arts and culture playground for kids of all ages.”

Exciting opportunities for inspiration and learning will continue throughout the park with hands-on building and art activities, interactive shows, archery, beach volleyball, martial arts, YMCA of Oakville skateboard ramp, face painting, vintage fire truck, Safari Science, Monkeynastix, City Parent Fun Zone and Scavenger Hunt, and more!

This year’s food features will include the Kinsmen Club of Oakville BBQ lunch, plus 10 of the GTA’s most popular food trucks. Residents and out-of-town guests are encouraged to take the free Oakville Transit shuttle service from the Bronte GO Station. Free bike parking will also be available onsite.
