MotoFest is an event to be enjoyed as a family. All of our live and static displays are child-safe. (We would recommend you bring ear defenders if the little ones have sensitive ears!) We also have a range of free activities specially chosen to engage and entertain our younger visitors.
A great opportunity for your little ones to have a go at driving on a circuit made especially for them in cars to match their size! Come and find them on Greyfriars Green.
Keep the kids entertained at MotoFest by visiting the fairground located in the heart of MotoFest on New Union Street.
Get the kids creative minds going with face painting on Greyfriars Green.
