Try clay hand-building in the pottery studio, stitching, playing with robotics and getting creative with a variety of art and craft activities. Watch, dance and sing along to live performances such as Chinese Dance Victoria, Mr. Mojo, the Lekwungen Traditional Dancers, ISSAMBA’s Mamadou and Eden Poynter. Be sure to grab lunch while you’re here: Kattia’s Kitchen food truck will be serving up authentic Mexican food, or try Greek on the Street for a traditional Greek experience.
