Presenting 17 different acts and activities, the YORKids 2023 program promises two fun filled days guaranteed to entertain and excite kids of all ages with a wide variety of free, interactive and engaging escapades.

This year, YORKids is delighted to present THE BEANIES as seen on ABC TV KIDS .  Based in Sydney and on a tour of Perth, THE BEANIES are a musical adventure for little ones with big imaginations.  Don’t miss them at the York Town Hall on Saturday 3 June at 10.30am and then again at 12.30pm.  

The  SCIENCE ALIVE shows on Sunday 4 June at 11am and 12.15pm are not only lots of fun for all ages, including adults, but they are informative and educational.  Creating great rapport with the kids, good humour, pace and lots of participation, get in early for these great shows at the York Town Hall.

The popular PACK YOUR OWN PICNIC is happening again at Gather York, and make sure you drop into the Mill Emporium whilst you are there to get your CARICATURES done.

There are plenty of festival favourite FACEPAINTERS scatted around, along with INCREDIBLE CREATURES and BARNYARD BUDDIES plus LASERTAG, BRICKS FOR KIDS, SPRAY & STENCIL and INFLATABLES to fill the day.

The rambunctious JUNCADELIC funky street jazz performers will be tooting their horns and kids can join in the JUNCADELIC WORKSHOP in Peace Park on Saturday 3 June to make percussion instruments including drums, shakers, bells, clapping sticks and even reed horns from all types of junk!

On Sunday afternoon, parents can take a breather whilst kids join in a fun interactive dance and performance workshop LET’S DANCE, learning styles of dance from ballet to contemporary and how to stay healthy through movement.   This activity is for boys and girls aged 4 to about 12.

YORKids takes place each year over the weekend of the WA Day Public Holiday and is now in its fifth year.  Activities are based at a variety of locations around York including in Avon Park, Peace Park, Avon Terrace, the Mill Emporium, Settlers House, Gather York, York Town Hall and also various acts will be roving around the town. This is a free program designed and delivered by the Shire of York.  

We look forward to seeing you there!
