Curiosity Fair

Kids and kids at heart are invited to play, create and investigate the mysteries of the world around them at our two-day festival in June.

Supported by     Dow AgroSciences  

When we were kids, the world was filled with amazing, wonderful things to discover. Curiosity Fair takes that spirit and runs with it!

Through a series of activities, presentations and hands-on demonstrations, the whole family will be encouraged to ask questions, share knowledge and ignite the urge to discover.
