The first ever FamFest in Constantia combines the sounds of a music festival with the goods of a market, the spectacle of a circus and much, much more.
Taking place on the Claremont Cricket Club fields in Constantia (next to Virgin Active) on Saturday 27 April, the festival gates open at 10 am and close at 9pm after the screening of a family-movie at an outdoor-cinema.
Director and Co-founder of 4Leaf Agency Frankie Hannigan, a father of three young boys, imagined FamFest into existence with children at the forefront and the festival prides itself on being 100% child-friendly.
FamFest has four zones - a Kids Zone, a Teen Park, a Chill Out Area and the Main Stage – which flow seamlessly into each other. The Kids Zone, staffed by child minders, offers fun activities and entertainment for younger children. The Teen Park will include an acrobatic show, break dance demos and lessons, gladiator jousting, a mechanical rodeo bull, bouncy horse racing, Foosball and Air Hockey tables. There will also be a partly shaded Chill Out Area where families can relax and re-energise.
K, Ray and the Bird and the Rob Thompson Trio are two of the confirmed bands to light up the Main Stage – suitable for adults, this zone includes fully stocked bars with a great selection of wines.
The drink stalls are geared towards the youngsters including a selection of juice stalls, ice tea providers and slush puppy machines. Keeping food options simple, FamFest offers good old-fashioned, hearty selections to keep both young and old going.
Health, safety and security are paramount and every child is given a wristband on entry, with parents/guardians asked to write their telephone numbers on the wristbands. There is a clearly visible meeting point, with announcements made throughout the day to ensure smooth operations. There is also on-site medic.
Tickets are available from www.quicket.co.za/events/1850-famfest/, however there will be limited tickets at the gate on the day. Tickets for the Open Air Cinema Screening can be purchased separately to the festival ticket or as a package.
