DreamBIG Children’s Festival | 19-29 May 2021

DreamBIG Children’s Festival 2021

DreamBIG Children’s Festival is returning in 2021! This year’s certainly been a big one, but DreamBIG is on the way to help South Australian kids continue to be curious, kind, imaginative, adventurous and compassionate in a changing world.

The full program will be released in February, but as an early Christmas gift, three DreamBIG shows are now on sale!

Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus

For the budding musicians and fans of tumbling and twirling, Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus is the perfect tribute to Mozart.

Magic Beach

Magic Beach is an imaginative take on an Australian classic by Finegan Kruckemeyer that brings magic and nostalgia for the Australian summer.

Creation Creation

Windmill Theatre Company’s Creation Creation aims to answer the big questions in life through art, performance, theatre, and a bit of fun.

Head to DreamBIG in May 2021 and let your curiosity run wild!


DreamBIG 2021

The Adelaide Festival Centre event will present 10 world premieres, two Australian premieres and 10 Adelaide premieres with the full family and general public program to be launched in February 2021. Next year’s theme of “Be Curious” encourages children to ask questions about the world through circus, puppetry, music, dance, play, poetry, quirky creatures, orchestras, technology, robots, monsters, a magic beach and a galaxy far, far away.

More than 2000 performers and students are involved in the 2021 program. While the majority of shows and activities are being held at Adelaide Festival Centre, some will take place in venues around the city, surrounding suburbs and regionally.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the program and schedule may have to be altered in response to the advice of the Chief Medical Officer.

Opening Event | 19 May 2021

The DreamBIG Opening Event, at Adelaide Oval’s Telstra Plaza on May 19, will see school children gather and The Mighty Choir of Small Voices, ably guided by the Public Primary Schools Music Festival team, sing a new arrangement of David Bowie’s Space Oddity.

It will finish with an uplifting gig by 2019 Australia’s Got Talent finalist Mitch Tambo who will perform with a group of young dancers from SA’s own fabulous Kurruru Dance Ensemble.

DreamBIG Children’s Festival Big Family Weekend |  22 & 23 May 2021

The FREE family event for children of all ages will take over the North Terrace Cultural Boulevard for two fun-filled days.

Theatres, galleries, museums, universities, libraries, and gardens will be welcoming families to discover and dream BIG!

The full Big Family Weekend program will be available in April 2021.
