With less than a week to go until school is out for winter, have you thought about what you might do to entertain your cherubs? Does the idea of a visit to the snow sound good to you, but you don't like the idea of being rained out? Well then, you need to know about The Big Freeze Festival.

This is Melbourne's first winter festival, which allows families to make the most of the season, without travelling to regional Victoria.

The Big Freeze Festival is a completely indoor event, which provides an affordable snow experience close to home for Melbourne families.

What can you expect from The Big Freeze Festival?

- Snow play sessions (made by a snow maker)
- Snow globe photo booth
- Enjoy a walk through the snow forest
- Performances and Meet & Greets with the Magical Princesses
- Superhero Training
- Get creative in the arts n craft zone
- Get building in the construction play zone
- Learn a new skill at one of the many workshops on offer
- Tony Tots free play area

Real snow, not the plastic stuff!

If you wonder whether you'll need to wear your winter woollies, the answer is yes, please do. While the snow is made from a machine (so is artificial in one sense), it uses the same technology as the machines you find at snow resorts when they need to make snow.

Avoid getting too cold and wet by wearing gloves and winter gear.

Indoor and undercover

The Big Freeze Festival is completely indoors and protected from the weather. That being the case, you won't need to worry if you've purchased a ticket on rainy day. You will be able to partake in all of the wintry activities, rain, hail or shine.

When is The Big Freeze Festival open?

The Big Freeze will be open to the public from Saturday, July 2 to Sunday, July 10 between 9am 5pm.

The Festival has allocated session times. There are only a limited number of tickets available for each session, so book online for your preferred spot as soon as you can.

Where is The Big Freeze Festival?

The Big Freeze Festival is at Cranbourne Racecourse, Grant Street, Cranbourne. There is FREE parking available on site.
