Festival on the Green - DinoFest



Sunday 7 May 2017 10am - 4pm


St Ives Village Green, Memorial Ave St Ives


DinoFest is set to excite as attendees are invited to explore the Jurassic-themed festival and get up-close and personal with the prehistoric animals that once ruled our planet. 

Giant dinosaurs will roam the park and perform in live and interactive shows throughout the day. Young paleontologists will get a chance to uncover hidden fossils or watch on as characters from ABC TV’s Dinosaur Train go on an adventure live on the main stage.

The Festival is also a great opportunity for Ku-ring-gai’s homegrown talent to take the stage with performances from school and community groups throughout the day.
