The much-anticipated 2024 Taichung Parent-Child Music Festival has arrived! According to the Information Bureau, Taichung City Government, this beloved event for both kids and adults will kick off in the Taichung Park on May 18 and 19. Notably, the city government has invited the popular British cartoon character Peppa Pig to join the celebration, and they've also introduced Taiwan's first-ever 4-meter-tall Peppa Pig giant inflatable. Additionally, both days of the festival will feature performances by the popular YOYO Family big brothers and sisters, along with special guests Peppa and George. They will have a happy weekend with kids and adults.


The Information Bureau noted that the Taichung Parent-Child Music Festival was originally delayed due to weather a few days ago. Many called to inquire about the new dates. Now set for the weekend of May 18 and 19 under the theme “Kids wants to have more fun,” the event will feature performances by 14 groups. The first day will kick off with an exhilarating drum display by the Huludun Smile Taiko Group, followed by performances by Grass Hat Girl Wen Bo-chun, Spinning Cube, Central Taiwan Brass Ensemble, Mr. Love Balloon Magic, and Jazz drummer Keying Lee. The first day’s closing act will feature a performance by Banana Brother, Kiwi Sister and other YOYO Family members.


On the event's second day, the popular YOYO Family brothers and sisters will entertain with an engaging taiko performance, followed by captivating performances by Chung-Hsiao Elementary School, Sonar Vocal Band, School of Rock, Taichung Artist Children Choir, and SoulBrat Dance Academy. Finally, Strawberry Sister and Star Brother will lead the closing act with singing and dancing, having a joyful time with kids and adults.


The Information Bureau noted that this year, in collaboration with local businesses in the creative industries, the city government provides Peppa Pig canvas zipper bags, available as exclusive gifts by completing a questionnaire. In addition, the event will feature music-themed activities where families can collaborate to earn limited-edition Peppa Pig-shaped magnets, allowing kids and adults to have fun while learning about musical instruments.


Moreover, there will be interactive parent-child entertaining activities on-site, including “Tossing Ball into Bags,” “Jumping Pads,” “Two-Person Ball Passing,” “Rocking Seesaw,” and “Finger Flick Chess.” These games serve to engage children in outdoor physical activities, fostering muscle development, coordination, sensory skills, and physical fitness. Parents are warmly invited to bring their kids along for some enjoyable playtime.


The Information Bureau also noted that at the event, there will be market stalls showcasing cultural and agricultural products, along with participation from parent-child centers in Taichung, offering interactive toy experiences for children. Furthermore, the Police Department will be present to promote traffic safety, anti-fraud, and anti-drug awareness, and will also bring a large Harley-Davidson motorcycle for family photo opportunities.
