What do I do if my child is lost?

If you become separated from your child, please go directly to the First Aid Tent located in Kauri Gardens, Rosalind Park, and request assistance. All lost children presented to festival staff will be taken to the First Aid Tent.

Wrist bands will be available at the Bendigo Visitor Centre. These can be used to ensure your child has the name and mobile number of their parent/guardian with them at all times. This is very helpful for young children who are not able to verbalise these details, and makes for a quicker reunion.

 

Can I smoke at the festival?

The Bendigo Easter Festival is a community event developed and organised for families and children. For this reason this event is a smoke free event. Please refrain from smoking within the festival precinct.

 

Can I bring my dog to the festival?

Dogs are permitted within Rosalind Park, however they must remain on a lead at all times. Please be considerate of other festival patrons and promptly clean up after your dog.
