A dazzling day of creative fun and entertainment in the sculpture garden

Join artists, educators and volunteers as they turn the sculpture garden into a family wonderland of creative workshops and installations. Try your hand at making a vibrant paper flower for our garden (bring it back for Fiesta).

Become an ancient Incan gold worker and help create an architectural feature with golden cards. Join indigenous artists to weave your own basket using material harvested from the garden. Choose from a dazzling array of face paint styles developed especially for the event and inspired by the body paint of ancient Peru and objects in the Gold and the Incas: Lost worlds of Peru exhibition. These are just a few of the many activities available on the day.

Be sure to catch the live music concert on the main stage featuring local legends Dr Stovepipe. With a unique mix of Hot Jazz, Gypsy Swing, Cowboy-Western combos & Popular Ragtime, Dr Stovepipe will get you and the kids up and dancing.

If you feel a fluffy nose rub your arm that is sure to be our special guest alpaca 'Forrest Gump' as he wanders around the garden looking for a pat.

Live pop-up performances will surprise and delight so keep your eyes peeled for the unexpected.

Bring a picnic to share under the trees. Coffee, sausage sizzle and other refreshments will be available for purchase.

All activities are free with materials provided.
