Fringe World Family Shows Perth

FRINGE WORLD Festival is Western Australia's most popular festival and the third largest Fringe in the world. The 2020 Festival will run from 17th January to 16th February 2020 and feature shows and entertainment at over 150 venues all over Perth & Regional WA. We have rounded up our top picks of family and budget friendly Fringe World events worth attending this year.

Juggling vs Magic

They've got three rounds to show off all their best tricks before YOU vote to decide the winner. One performer will rule as king of kids entertainment - the loser gets slimed! Will sleight of hand steal the show? Will circus tricks grab the gold? It's up to YOU! Audience participation is everything in this high energy battle royale. You won't believe your eyes! 

Together Michael Connell (SA, FRINGE WORLD Best Comedy Weekly Award Winner 2019) & Cameron the Magician (WA) bring over 25 years experience making kids laugh through the magic of genuine and spontaneous interactions to their new show Juggling vs Magic! You'll be impressed with their magic and juggling skills but you'll love how everyone is encouraged to be super silly, parents included!
