Geelong’s inaugural Festival of Sport at Kardinia Park is a celebration of physical activity, health, and the diversity of sport in the region. The Festival will open the GMHBA Stadium and Precinct to the community on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October from 10am to 3pm for a weekend of FREE sporting experiences and entertainment.
The community will be welcomed to Kardinia Park to participate in over 30 different ‘come and try’ activations each day, including standup paddle boarding, rugby, tennis, roller derby and more. Festival goers will have the chance to view the Stadium through the Geelong Football Club Charles Brownlow Stand Tours, meet with sporting stars, play on the ‘hallowed turf’ and be photographed with significant Australian sporting trophies. Visitors will also be treated to free family entertainment and exhibitions showcasing local events, tourism, arts and culture throughout the weekend.
