Kids corner 2017

Kids corner - Le Mini Festival

Le Festival focuses on recreating the French vibe for people of all ages including the little ones. This year we put much effort into the Kid’s Corner to make them enjoy Le Festival and discover activities they might not have done before.

For 2017, the Kid’s Corner’s theme is « The five senses » ou "Les cinq sens". Children will be able to experience the sense through famous French children activities. From making "croissants" to listening to French stories, they’ ll be plenty for them to have fun and a good time.

Le Mini Festival will be open in Liana lounge (under the Wheel of Brisbane) Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July from 10am to 4pm. Free entry.
Most activities will be open to all at no cost, except a few where we’ll ask you for a symbolic $2*.
When you enter the Festival, you’ll be given a ticket for each one of your children. If you then go to the Kids Corner once you exit Le Festival, bring the voucher to the Kid’s Corner and we’ll give away a fun French exercise book or flash cards to each one of your children. (stocks are limited. But we have plenty of stock!)

Read through this page to find out more about all the exciting things planned this year for your children.

 

*We work everyday to ensure everyone enjoys those 3-days, but being a not-for-profit organization run by only volunteers, we need to cover some basic costs.
