Kidsfest Shellarbour is the biggest community run free week-long festival for children, their families and carers in New South Wales.
The festival aims to get kids out and about, trying activities and connecting with their community.

Kidsfest isn’t just for kids. Shellharbour civic centre is offering free parting workshops. Isha Knill will teach parents how to have a happy mind and happy kids, or how to be supportive of your partner so their business can thrive.
The festival ends on Saturday May 26 with a party at the Killalea camping ground. Expect musical acts, a costume parade, Indigenous dancers, craft, a rock climbing wall and free movie screenings before the night ends with music around the campfire.
