Event Info

After the success of last year’s Summer of Smiles and the Winter of Wellbeing, Child Friendly Cardiff are bringing the “Summer of Fun” festival to the children and young people of Cardiff across the summer holidays.

The Summer of Fun 2022 will support Cardiff’s future generations with their social, emotional, mental and physical wellbeing over the summer and continue the essential work of the city’s child friendly recovery, which began after the pandemic.

Festival Site on City Hall Lawn

July 23rd to August 7th

Come and join us on City Hall Lawn for a Summer festival of fun-filled activities. Join in on various workshops, watch fantastic theatre, spectacular performances, contribute to the communal Art installation, play games, or simply dwell in the Sunshine. Child Friendly Cardiff are committed to re-engaging the children and young people of Cardiff with their City whilst putting smiles on their faces once more.  

Citywide Activities

July 23rd to September 5th

Child Friendly Cardiff wants to reach as many children and young people as possible and support to have fun and nurture their social, emotional, mental and physical wellbeing over the Summer Holidays. To connect with as many people as possible, we are supporting a large number of organisations to provide a wide range of activities in all areas of the city.

Arts and Culture Programme (Arts Active)

July 23rd to September 5th

Throughout July and August Arts Active are working with partners across the city to run a range of fun arts events and activities for children, young people and families.

Our showcase event will be the Out of Doors Live at the Summer of Fun festival on the City Hall Lawn where from 23 July – 7 August we will have a packed programme of  arts activities and entertainment. As well as this we will be heading out into community centres, youth centres and leisure centres across Cardiff to offer further fun arts activities for all ages.

Also look out for some of our regular summer events at St David’s Hall – The Tiddly Prom for the under 5s and the Family Prom both offer families the chance to see wonderful live music with stories, characters and interaction to engage and enthral the audience.
