What are the opening hours?

Doors open at 9am and last entry will be at 3.30pm. The event closes at 4pm.

Where can I buy tickets?

Tickets are now available online through Ticketek.

Or you can avoid the booking fees and buy them on the day from the ticket booth. Silverdome can take cash or card.

What is there to do on the day?

We’ll have over 60 different activities available to try and engage with on the day. Allow at least two hours to be able to see and do as much as you can. Once you’re in the doors, all the activities are free!

Glad you asked! We’ve put together some amazing weekend packages with our partners, Tamar Valley Resort, that offer two nights accommodation, tickets to the Event, breakfast at their restaurant both days and discounted tickets to some other awesome family friendly attractions in the area. The wonderful Amy from Tassie4kids will have packages loaded shortly!

I’m travelling to Launceston for this and want to spend the weekend. What do you suggest?

Can I buy food there?


The Silverdome have done some renovations since we there last, and have built a brand new kiosk closer to the entrance. They’ll have a great range of food options up there, and there will be a coffee van on the Silverdome floor too. Of course, you can always bring your own too.

What about drinks?

There will be FREE water refills provided on the day. Do the right thing and bring your own water bottle to refill.

Where do I find my lost grown up?

The Information Desk will be the go-to point to reunite parents and children. A great tip is to take a photo of your kids before you enter so can have a copy on your phone to show our volunteers, it will help find each other quicker. And try to remember what colour top they are wearing, that can help too. The Silverdome has limited entry and exit points, it will be hard for them to go too far. Our volunteers at the doors will prevent any child leaving without an adult.

Can I change or feed my baby anywhere?

Absolutely! There is a baby change table in the toilets, and also one on the venue floor.

What ages does this event suit?

All the activities are designed for kids up to 12. There is a designated Toddler Area this year so little ones under 4 can be assured of some fun things to do in that space. All the rest of the activities are designed for 4 -12 years.

Sorry, this event is specifically designed for primary school kids, older kids change the entire dynamic of the event. We ask that you respect that by explaining to your teenagers that this is not designed for them. They are most certainly welcome to attend but they will not be allowed to participate in the activities (except to assist a younger sibling).

I’ve got kids aged older than 12, can they join in?
