PlayFest is the ACT Playgroups’ annual festival of fun for families with children under school age. Together with community organisations, government agencies, sporting bodies, and businesses, ACT Playgroups provides families with information of the many children’s activities available in the ACT.

PlayFest is a annual event held during Children’s Week in October. This major activity attracts over 1500 people each year. Come along and be part of the fun!

If your organisation is interested in having a stall at this event please be sure to let us know so we can add you to our invite list.

Families with children from birth to 5 years of age, please save the date now!
Playfest will not be running this year due to Covid – 19.
Hope to see you in 2021
