Where You Are Festival
The Where You Are Festival, a two-month long program of exciting and vibrant events and experiences from local organisations, creators, event organisers, artists and businesses, promises a festival like no other.
Curated by Events ACT, the Where You Are Festival will be the typical festival re-imagined, delivering a program connecting the ACT community with the best experiences the Canberra region has to offer, both online and offline, from ‘Where You Are’ right now, while restrictions on mass gatherings are in place.
Delivered under the umbrella of RISE Canberra – the ACT government’s COVID-19 event sector support program, the Where You Are Festival will feature unique Canberra experiences across art and culture, music, ideas and forums, sport, community and food.
The program will promote Canberra as a lively, innovative and creative centre, and will inspire audiences to realise that creativity, connection and community all continue to thrive wherever we find ourselves.
Enjoy a dinosaur-themed party with lots of fun activities. Learn about the dinosaurs while having fun and celebrating your birthday!
