As for activities, they were mostly chosen to complement the live performances. Interactive shows that have hands-on activities include art and building workshops, seedling plantings, face painting, free indoor swimming, summer camp experience, sports zone, Fire safety Zone, City Parent Scavenger Hunt, and more. Oakville Public Library will also have storytimes and the Oakville Public Library Book Sale.

Attend Oakville Children’s Festival 2019
If you want to attend, you are free to take the free Oakville Transit shuttle from Bronte GO Station. You may also bike to the venue as vehicle parking will not be available during that day together with parking restrictions to be enforced in the neighbourhood on festival day. Like the shuttle, festival admission is free and the event will push through come rain or shine on August 17, 2019, Saturday, at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre.
