Children's Festival & Duck Pluck
- This event has passed.
June 15 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Children’s Festival and Duck Pluck raffle is a family-friendly event that enriches the lives of children and families on the Sunshine Coast. It delivers a magical experience that combines music, art, theatre and interactive games.
This year’s event will be headlined by Will Stroet of Will’s Jams. Will is a Juno-nominated singer & songwriter, CBC Kids & Universal Kids TV star, educator and dad who creates multilingual music that ignites the imagination and motivates movement.
Our music line-up will also feature local sensations Graham Walker & Mr. Doug.
Some of the feature activities include a Teddy Bear Hospital (so bring your stuffie for repairs), face painting, a upcycle t-shirts into bags booth, storytime with local children’s author Sarah Joseph and a dress up box and photo booth.
The Children’s Festival and Duck Pluck raffle kicks off in May with the sale of tickets, one for $5 or five for $20. They will be available at various venues around the Sunshine Coast.
The raffle tickets correspond with 2,500 numbered rubber ducks. On the date of the festival, June 15, 2019, children and adults alike will thrill in the excitement as lucky ducks are “plucked” from our special duck pond.
All proceeds from the Children’s Festival and Duck Pluck raffle goes to Sunshine Coast Community Services Society, the largest non-profit on the Sunshine Coast. We have been making our community stronger, safer and more resilient since 1974. Our organization supports over 5,000 community members through 35 programs in four main areas: Community Action and Engagement, Child and Family Counselling, Child Development and Youth Services and Together Against Violence.
