Arguably the largest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, DreamBIG is the longest–running curated children’s festivals in the world, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2025.


Placing its young audience at the centre of fresh, inventive, imaginative and inspiring arts experiences, DreamBIG remains an intrinsic part of growing up in South Australia.

Over 2.5 million children have participated since its inception (as Come Out Festival) and it has continued to maintain its reputation of excellence locally, nationally, and internationally.

DreamBIG’s mission:

  • To connect young people to their self, to their community and to their values through the world’s best artistic experiences.
  • To nurture the values and skills young people need to thrive and contribute to the wider community, both now and in the future.
  • To empower young people by giving them the license and tools to explore their own creativity.
  • To foster children’s natural curiosity and imagination to cultivate their sense of wonder and agency in the world.
  • To embrace our audience’s diversity through strong access and inclusion programs.

DreamBIG 2025 will take place from May 7 – 17 2025.
