This year's festival promises to be bigger and better than ever, with a wide range of imaginative and exciting family shows, events and activities for the kids to enjoy.

One of the highlights of this year's festival is the Awesome Armadale Hub, bringing the magic of the festival to new areas of Perth.

Part of the City of Armadale's Spring Into Armadale, a celebration of the region's beautiful backdrop, this expansion exposes children and new audiences to the benefits of the Awesome Festival, nurturing a love and appreciation for the arts and creativity.

One of these unique opportunities from Awesome Armadale Hub is the Kids Market where if your child is entrepreneurial, creative and crafty...

Why not make it a whole family affair by making stuff together to sell and signing up for a stall?
