Wagga Wagga City Council’s Director of Community Janice Summerhayes said Spring Jam has been a spring staple and Wagga Wagga’s biggest outdoor festival dedicated to kids.

“We are excited to be back in 2022 and the different zones and activities will be sure to carry you throughout the entire day,” Ms Summerhayes said.

“Staff have carefully curated each zone to appeal to the different interests of children and young people across our city.”

Bring the whole family along for a day of outdoor fun and excitement.
