Concerts & Performances Kids Activities Melbourne
The great thing about Melbourne's outdoor festivals is that everyone can enjoy them. At outdoor concerts, grown ups can enjoy being outdoors on a lovely day or evening, relaxing, even if the music is for kids. And, generally, kids will put up with an adult performance much better if they can run around, dance, play and picnic while you enjoy a little grown up entertainment for once. Of course it's fun to visit the indoorsy entertainment at Venues too!
Family shows are just as fun as the concerts you may remember from your pre-parenting days but the music isn't as loud, the settings are sometimes more intimate with the children nestled around the performer and there is nothing cuter than watching the littlies get up and groove to the music.
Every year the City of Stonnington put on a free community event in Victoria Gardens that's packed to the brim of live music, talks, workshops, stalls, food, kids activities and practical demonstrations.
It's a celebration of spring in all her glory and with the support of local businesses and the community it's the perfect excuse to get outdoors and enjoy the celebrations.
Paris to Provence is Melbourne's highly anticipated yearly French festival and it's now in its 10th year.
Set amongst what is already a beautiful backdrop in South Yarra, Como House and Gardens will once again transform into a French pop-up village where you can smell, touch and taste all that embodies France.
