The Family Realm is a large, shady area in the centre of the festival dedicated to providing a safe space for families to play, rest, create and learn together.
The Kids Space will be back in 2018 for it's 10th anniversary!! Having grown up so much from humble beginnings in a single tipi with a dozen kids in 2009, the Kids Space is set to explode in colour, music, craft, dance, circus, movies, games and huge amounts of fun for the whole family from toddlers to their grandparents. To celebrate the decade of Kids Space, we will be bringing back some of your favourite workshops and performers as well as showcasing the immense talent of the kids themselves in a very special Welcoming Ceremony performance.
The Parenting Place is a small space promoting discussion and knowledge transfer of all things parenting. Catch a seminar on childhood development, join in an open discussion on home birth or holistic education; participate in a parents support circle. The topics chosen for the Parenting Place will cover many aspects of natural, sustainable parenting and bonding.
There is also a toddler play area for the littlest festival folk with a sandpit, play gym, toys and paddling pool. Open all day, this is a relaxed, shady spot to sit back, eat lunch and watch the kids play in the fully fenced safety of the Family Realm. The toddler play area has also been known to be visited regularly by storytellers, face painters and circus folk for added entertainment and family fun.
The Earth Frequency Family Realm is for families to enjoy together. Unattended children will not be allowed entrance. The Family Realm is a glass, drug, smoke and alcohol free area.
If you have an enthusiastic young EarthFreq who would like to be involved in the Kids Space showcase for the Welcoming Ceremony 2018, please email familyrealm [at] earthfrequency.com.au to get involved.
Family Realm Participation Passes
Earth Frequency Festival has been committed to running a family friendly festival with the introduction of the Kids Space in 2008, and a policy of free/discounted tickets for children. Now 10 years after it's humble beginnings in a single tipi with a dozen children, the Family Realm has become very popular and wildly exceeded our early ideas about what this space would ever be, with hundreds of children attending the space each year and a team that is barely able to keep up with the demand! The rate of growth, connection and learning has been phenomenal and we thank you for your love and support over the years.
To keep up with this amazing level of participation and to ensure that we can continue to provide quality workshops, entertainment and professional staff, we have introduced a $20 participation pass for the Family Realm per child. The Family Realm participation fee is being implemented to ensure that enough materials and professional staff can be made available to cover the growing interest in the space from all the beautiful Earth Frequency families, and to help us estimate the number of children that we will be providing for. This pass will be available to purchase online when you buy your tickets and every child over the age of 1 will require a pass to enter the Family Realm. Parents and guardians are not required to purchase the pass.
Thank you all so much for your support and for bringing your bright young beings to be part of the festival.
