Get involved in Geelong Children's Week 2021.

The 16th annual Geelong Children’s Week returns later this month with a mixture of in-person and digital events.

With more than 25 events on offer across the region, Children’s Week provides children and their parents the opportunity to connect with community organisations in their local areas in a fun and engaging way.

The program runs from Saturday 23 October to Sunday 31 October, and activities range from virtual performances through to in-person events celebrating arts and culture activities.

The full program of activities and events is listed below.

We would love to hear from you and your children about your experiences with Children's Week.
