CancelledMayor’s Family Picnic

Unfortunately, Council has been forced to cancel the Mayor’s Family Picnic on Saturday due to the wet and very windy weather conditions.

We hope that everyone intending to attend the event have an enjoyable weekend and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

This year at the Mayor's Family Picnic, we are excited to offer a range of children’s activities, food trucks and stalls, live musical performances, a licensed bar, local crafts and plenty of market stalls, interactive activities and more. There is plenty to see and do.

Here are some of the offerings:

  • The Bandwagon Stage features a wide range of entertainment options, including Frankston-based X-factor runner-up Andrew Wishart, teen vocalist CC Dewar, Sanctuary Duo (DJ Brittany Leo and musician Daniel Johnson), Welcome to Country and Joshua Batten. Fem & Casey have turned a vintage ute into a swingin’ curb-side, jazz club (well… jazz and anything else that can fit on the back of a Triton). 
  • On the acoustic stage, you can enjoy up-and-coming teen LGBT singer/songwriter Kaiyah Mercedes, Seaford-raised guitarist/vocalist Trevor Bartle, Harmony Thomas-Brown and Johnny Keenan.
  • The Strong Sisters Sportsfest is a Come and Try event for mothers/mother figures and daughters which will run in conjunction with the Mayor’s Family Picnic. A number of local, state, sports and recreation organisations will be there.
  • Becky Bubble invites audiences of all ages to immerse themselves in a wonderful world of swirling rainbows as she creates large bubbles and teaches you how to make your own giant bubbles.
  • Roving performers on stilts by Stilltainment - the stilt divas are trained in gymnastics, circus, dance, trampolining, acting and theatre.
  • Riverscape is a beautiful interactive pop up play space with 50 amazing realistic replica rocks offering an open-ended play experience for kids of all ages.
  • An inflatable maze with exciting twists and turns challenges the young at heart.
  • A colourful mobile wall offers a mosaic scape for children to make patterns and pictures on the wall.
  • Art CuBed offers more outdoor fun with 12 giant outdoor puzzle cubes for kids to use to form a picture. Iconic artworks are offered to get families thinking and playing together.
  • The Stardust Fairies offer free face painting.

There will be dozens of stall holders to visit offering information, wares and of course food. If it is cuisine you are after, the options are numerous from dumplings and calamari to spuds and candy. A licensed bar will also be operating.
