The ILT Kidzone Festival is Southland’s most popular family event and is held annually during the July school holidays at James Hargest College Senior Campus.

The festival runs for six days during the term two holidays and is an exciting day out for school-age children and their family members - offering something for everyone.

Attracting close to 11,000 people each year, tickets are always in hot demand with those in the South knowing just how fantastic the event is. Ticket sales open in May and can be purchased online at the ILT Kidzone website or from the Invercargill i-SITE and ILT Stadium Southland.

Southland's community funders and sponsors provide significant support to the festival, contributing approximately $140,000 each year. Without the support of these funders, including the Invercargill Licencing Trust, the ILT Foundation, the Community Trust South and Southern Trust the festival wouldn't be possible.

We look forward to the July holidays each year, and to welcoming Southland families, and those from further afield to another fantastic ILT Kidzone Festival!
