Spring Jam will once again bring the Wagga Wagga Botanic Gardens to life with a jam-packed, outdoor festival of family fun on Saturday 28 September.

With adventure play, acrobatics, live music, delicious food and even a relaxing chill-out zone, Spring Jam guarantees there’s something for everyone and best of all entry is free.

“Spring Jam is bigger and better this year with new acts and entertainment, including two new ticketed workshops, High Voltage Rock School and Kids Who Glow,” Wagga Wagga City Council’s Visitor Economy and Events Coordinator Fiona Hamilton said.

Tickets are on sale now via the Visit Wagga Wagga website so secure your spot today as places are limited.

Both workshops provide a unique opportunity for kids to engage in new and exciting experiences.

Well-known Australian festival favourites Bunny Racket, The Cope Street Parade and the Dancing Accounting will liven the crowd with high-energy performances, while the Creative Space will give kids a chance to make fun and messy seed balls or artworks.

Enjoy the outdoors in the Adventure Zone, with an eight-metre-high rock-climbing wall and get active with the In-Motion-Fitness obstacle course.

“Come along and learn acrobatics from the Flying Fruit Fly Circus experts at one of their three workshops,” Ms Hamilton said.

For those wanting to enjoy the peace and quiet surrounds of the Botanic Gardens head along to Platform, a new all-inclusive chill out space provided by Eastern Riverina Arts in collaboration with IDEAS.

Housed in a uniquely refurbished shipping container, Platform is reserved as a quiet space for festival goers with sensory related needs.

“Families can pack a picnic or grab some Spring Jam delights down food alley,” Ms Hamilton said.

Spring Jam is on from 10am to 4pm.
