Council are happy to advise that Casey Fun Fest that was to be held at Wilson Botanic Park Berwick will now revert back to the event known as the Casey Kids Carnival at Akoonah Park on Saturday 9 April 2016 from 11.00 am to 4.00 pm. This decision has been taken following notification that resurfacing work at Akoonah Park will be completed ahead of schedule.
This relocation will provide optimum access to a variety of parking options, accessible facilities and increased capacity to provide a wider range of entertainment and interactive activities for a larger attendance. Returning to Akoonah Park also offers constancy for stallholders, performers and the community.
The Casey Kids Carnival is a free day of activities for the whole family including live performances, interactive activities, rides, market stalls, roving entertainment and face painting.
If you have any enquiries regarding the Casey Kids Carnival, please contact the City of Casey Customer Service.
