Oakville Children's Festival

Lisa Loeb to headline 2016 Oakville Children’s Festival on Sunday, July 10, 2016!

Festival guests can expect fun and catchy tunes, as well as a few 90s classics from the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter turned children’s performer.

In addition to Lisa Loeb, this year’s festival will also feature performances by the Big Nazo, FiddleFire, CORPUS’ Camping Royale, TUDS Oakville Urban Dance Battle featuring Gadfly Dance, Sing Along Tim and the Pacifiers, Team T & J, and magicians Ray Chance and Mike D’Urzo.

Exciting opportunities for inspiration and learning will continue throughout the park with hands-on building and art activities, interactive shows, Zorbit Sports and Bubble Soccer, archery, beach volleyball, martial arts, YMCA of Oakville skateboard ramp, face painting, Oakville Fire vintage fire truck, Safari Science, Monkeynastix, City Parent Fun Zone and Scavenger Hunt, Dairy Farmers of Canada featuring Mooonica the Cow, 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.

Mark your calendar, pack a lunch, and come down to Coronation Park located at 1426 Lakeshore Road West (map) for the day. Free bike parking available on site. Festival admission is free and the event will take place rain or shine. Additional acts and activities will be announced as they are confirmed.
