Tickets on sale for ILT Kidzone Festival

Tuesday 7 May 2019

Roll up, roll up – come one, come all! Tickets for the 2019 ILT Kidzone festival are now on sale!

Drawing inspiration from the wonderful world of the circus, the 2019 ILT Kidzone Festival will be held from Wednesday 10 to Monday 15 July at James Hargest College Senior Campus.

Festival Director Karen Witham said the countdown to Southland’s biggest family festival was on with tickets now on sale.

“With over 160 activities on offer, including some festival favourites and some exciting new elements, the festival is a sure ticket to adventure and fun during the July school holidays,” she said.

With the circus as its muse, the festival will embrace a carnival atmosphere with opportunities for festival attendees to learn how to juggle, perform acrobatics and explore their own creativity.

Famous in Southland and increasingly beyond, the festival provides an affordable school holiday adventure for families.

“Anything you create, choose to play on, take part in, or watch is included – the only thing you’ll need to consider bringing is lunch or money to buy your lunch from one of our fantastic food vendors. For five hours of entertainment, the festival truly offers unrivalled value for money,” Witham said.

Tickets are $17.00 per person, per day, with under two-year-olds free, and can be purchased from the ILT Kidzone Festival website, at the Invercargill i-SITE, ILT Stadium Southland or at the gate on the day - if not sold out prior!

“Over 11,000 people attended the festival last year so my advice is for people to get in early and purchase tickets to their preferred day,” Witham said.

ILT Kidzone is proudly presented by Venture Southland with generous support from community funders including Invercargill Licencing Trust, the ILT Foundation, the Community Trust South and Southern Trust
