Spot On Children’s Festival 2020

The-Beanies-photo-by-Jay-LaRiverside Theatres Parramatta will throw open it’s doors to welcome back physical audiences to the theatre, when it hosts the 2020 Spot On Children’s Festival this September.

Back for its ninth year, the four-day festival runs from Tuesday 29 September to Friday 2 October and features a fun filled, imaginatively hilarious and jam-packed line up.

For the first time in 2020, Spot On will feature a mix of live in-person shows and live streamed shows, opening the Festival up to a national audience for the first time, and allowing families to choose how they join in the fun.

The Festival promises to be anything but boring. The line-up hitting the live stages includes The Beanies, The Box Show, Tiptoe Giants, Avocado Smash, Dr Audio Yo, and The Ridiculously Entertaining Adventures of Kiki and Pascal.

The afternoon activities take a hands-on approach with workshops featuring members of The Beanies, The Box Show and Avocado Smash, plus free streams daily via YouTube offering painting, story time, Auslan songs and more.

“As one of our favourite events, I am delighted that our first opportunity to open our doors to audiences is for our annual Spot on Children’s Festival,” said Riverside Theatres Director Robert Love AM. “That we can also provide the choice for people to see it digitally – well what could be more ‘spot on’ than that?”

Riverside Theatres is a registered COVID Safe venue – and has enhanced health and hygiene measures in place. The 2020 Spot On Children’s Festival runs Tuesday 29 September to Friday 2 October. For more information and program times, visit: for details.
