The free Oakville Transit shuttle service from the Halton Regional Centre (1151 Bronte Road) will begin at 9:30 a.m. with buses operating approximately every five minutes to and from the festival. The shuttle will also make a stop at Bronte GO Station (2104 Wyecroft Road) to accommodate out-of-town guests and public transit users. The last shuttle will leave Coronation Park at 5 p.m. All festival events will end by 4 p.m., so plan accordingly. Please note that there is no parking on site and on-street parking is limited.
Large crowds, noise, heat and excitement can be an unsafe environment for your pet. Visitors to the Oakville Children’s Festival are encouraged to leave their pets at home.
The Town of Oakville is committed to providing smoke-free outdoor spaces where kids play. In 2012, the Town of Oakville banned smoking within nine metres of all town-owned parks, playgrounds, splash pads, tennis courts, basketball courts, skateboard parks and playing fields.
It was blue skies and sunshine at the first-ever Oakville Children’s Festival held on Sunday, July 27, 2014 at Coronation Park.
More than 15,000 festival-goers enjoyed performances by multi-award-winning Sharon, Bram & Friends, Sheesham & Lotus, Jack Grunsky, IncrediBrent, and Safari Science. Corpus’ Les moutons (actors dressed as sheep) and the Fantasy Fables Snow Queen and Ice Princess ensured lasting memories for all.
Fun and learning continued throughout the park with interactive building and art activities, story times, reptile and science shows, kids’ play zone and obstacle course, face painting, balloon artists, and more. The Kinsmen Club of Oakville and food trucks served up great eats for both adults and kids.
