WOMADelaide is extremely family friendly. Many of you may have grown up with WOMADelaide, and we love seeing the next generations of tiny dancers appearing every year. Read on for information on how to maximise your family fun at WOMADelaide!
Children 12 and Under
Children 12 and under are admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult to WOMADelaide! There is no limit on the number of children under 12 an adult can bring in and they do not need a ticket in advance. Children must enter with a responsible adult and unaccompanied children will not gain access.
*Please ensure that you apply a kids wristband upon entry, available at the box office or just inside the gate. Further details below.
A discounted Youth Pass price is offered to patrons aged between 13 - 17.
Please note that proof of age may be required to gain entry and that it is a condition of the event Liquor License that after Midnight all people under the age of 18 must in the company and supervision of an adult.
Minors are not permitted to enter the bars even if they are with a parent or responsible adult. Anyone who is considering being the nominated adult should consider this responsibility carefully as they will not be able to enter bars or licensed areas with minors. Proof of age ID is required when collecting a youth wristband - age must be under 18 on the last day of the festival.
Available at the Info Booth, KidZone and the Hackney and Frome Road entrances. Parents or guardians must wristband their children and mark them with a responsible adult’s name and mobile number.
Caregivers should arrange with children to meet at the Info Booth if they get separated. If a lost child arrives at the Info Booth, WOMADelaide staff will try to contact the number on the wristband. If unsuccessful, they will contact the Emergency Operations Centre.

WOMADelaide follows a strict Lost Child/Missing Persons procedure. All lost children/persons are taken to the Info Booth. Parents/Guardians, please report a missing child/person at the Info Booth.
We have an entire area dedicated to our little humans! A world of fun awaits in the KidZone with daily activities programmed specially for kids. Immersive activities, science discoveries, story telling, dress-ups, face painting, bouncy things and much more!
