The Young Children’s Festival (YCF) is an annual event (since 1995) in Castle Park providing an inclusive, fun day out for young families with free activities like art, craft, sport, music and dance plus the aim of signposting to sources of advice and support.
We aim to make all families feel included, whatever their background, needs or means.
A funfair and a range of food stalls are also available.
YCF is a unique event in the Colchester calendar, being free and aimed primarily at children.
This year’s theme is “Lets Play”
The Festival is in association with Colchester Borough Council’s LiveWell campaign and Community 360
- 10.30 – 4pm
- The official opening is at 11am
Entry is free, the event is entirely voluntary and funded by fundraising; donations on the day welcome.
