Save the date for a fantasy quest
Save the date for a fantasy quest at the 2017 Goldfields KidsFest, which will be held at Criuckshanks Oval on April 22 and 23.

This year, kids of all ages will be taken on a magical adventure with the exciting new theme “Goldfields KidsFest Fantasy Quest”, with lots of fantastic activities, whimsical workshops and spellbinding performances.

City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder CEO John Walker said the City was excited to be moving the Goldfields KidsFest to a bigger and better new venue, Cruickshanks Oval.  

“The change of venue to Cruickshanks Oval has been made for a number of reasons – it’s a bigger venue, which gives us opportunities for future growth of the event, as well as having better capacity in terms of infrastructure for things like fencing, water and electricity,” he said.

“Cruickshanks also opens up new partnerships with community groups and sporting clubs, as well as having the added benefit of the oval not currently being used by any sporting groups, which gives us lots more flexibility in the types of activities we can have on the grass.

“Our events team have been working hard on bringing this year’s Fantasy Quest theme, and I think kids and parents alike will be mesmerised when we reveal our headline acts and performances.”

The City is calling for expressions of interest from local businesses, community and sporting groups who would like to facilitate activities or workshops or fundraise through running food stalls at the event.  Interested parties must be available for both days of the event from 10am until 4pm.
