The countdown is on to the FREE Wodonga Children’s Fair this Sunday (28 October 2018). Make sure you visit the Junction Support Services team just inside the main entrance to the fair.
The first Wodonga Children’s Fair was held in 1990 and it now attracts up to 16,000 people a year.
This year’s fair will be held on Sunday 28 October from 10am to 3pm at Wodonga Racecourse, Hamilton Smith Drive.
With free entry, a free shuttle bus to get there and parking for those wishing to drive, there’s no excuse to miss out on all the fun.
Wodonga Children’s Fair celebrates families and young people and acknowledges the huge effort that families put into raising children to be active and healthy and make positive contributions to our community’s well-being.
All the usual favourites return to this year’s fair and they are joined by some exciting new additions with high-octane motorcycle and BMX performances from Flair Action Sports and Wild Action wildlife.

Last year was Junction’s first visit to the children’s fair and we’ll be back bigger and better this year.
Families and Children’s Specialist Services team member Colleen Crispe said the team was working hard to prepare games and activities for children and families on the day.
This year the Families and Children’s Team will be playing with some play dough, there will be a huge tarp with play dough and lots of shapes. They will also be playing in the sand pits, digging for buried treasure, what might the kids find hidden in the sand?
Looking for something a little bit more active? We will also be playing “brain breaks”. There will be a giant colourful dice, with stacks of cards of animals. Match the colour of the card to the dice and kids will move like the animal on the card.
Colleen said we’ll have giveaway bags filled with great stuff to keep kids occupied.
“The bag itself is a Boomerang bag, parents may like to sneakily take the bag once the kids have emptied it of all the goodies and use it for their shopping,” she said. “Thank you to Boomerang bags for supporting Junction with the bags.”
Junction Support Services is a not-for-profit organisation and our mission is to work with individuals and families to support them to achieve their potential.
