Wodonga Racecourse Recreation and Showground Reserve


Since its inception in 1990, the award-winning Wodonga Children's Fair has been a major success and is a feature of Wodonga's calendar of events.

It is held in October each year and is a free event for families - both local and from afar, attracting up to 16,000 people.

The aim of the event is to celebrate families and young people, and to acknowledge the huge effort that families put into raising children to be active and healthy and make positive contributions to our community's well-being.

Wodonga Children's Fair is open to all families, giving them the opportunity to spend time together at an event where they can be entertained, informed, engaged, educated and most importantly have fun.

Each year we’re committed to making sure the fair is bigger and better than ever, but still achieves the same objectives:

  • To build a sense of community among children and their extended families in our city;
  • To stage an event that encourages people to visit our city and patronise our businesses; and,
  • To build on our partnerships with key stakeholders in the early years and children’s space.

Please forward event enquiries to council's Event Co-ordinator, Duryarne Streat, by emailing dstreat@wodonga.vic.gov.au

Wodonga Council would like to thank the following sponsors for supporting Children's Fair 2017:
