What is Playstival with the Happy Pear?
A 2-day NEW summer festival for children and their parents. Playstival celebrates play, imagination, and fun with a range of hands-on, fun and imaginative games and themed play universes.
Playstival is both interactive and active, kids don’t just sit and watch, they play. The focus is on a more innocent approach to games and play, designed to foster interaction, movement and imagination - no fancy technology or a screen to be found!
Playstival showcases eight themed ‘play universes’ for children to immerse themselves in, use their imaginations to create ideas, roles and characters, and most importantly have lots of fun. From a construction site for kids to the wild wild west, the wonderfully themed play universes offer an unforgettable day of pure fun for families set in the heart of Dublin. The ‘play universes’ comprise beautifully made, tactile wooden games, which have been designed by Festijeux, the world renowned French games company passionate about positive play and the power of the imagination. Festijeux’s creative children’s games have featured at many popular family events across Europe.
Furthermore, delicious and nourishing Happy Pear food will be on offer throughout the weekend – from healthy wraps and salads, to hot dishes, as well as Happy Pear smoothies, hand-roasted coffees, and a selection of healthier cakes and treats.
Playstival was created, and is presented, by the team at Laya Healthcare City Spectacular, which is Ireland’s largest summer family festival and the 2nd largest festival event, annually, after the St. Patrick’s Festival. City Spectacular and The Happy Pear share a vision to create a NEW festival with interactive play, connection and movement at its core.
Playstival with the Happy Pear is an antithesis of how the world is moving (mobile phones, games consoles etc.).
Playstival is the antithesis of too much screen time, which increasingly proves have a detrimental effect on kids’ cognitive & social development.
The festival is created to give parents and their kids a real genuine feel good time to play in an atmosphere that is 100% interactive. This is an ‘involvement’ festival, not just an entertainment festival. Everything will be interactive.
While there are several ‘family’ festivals and days out during the summer, there’s nothing that celebrates play by putting children at the centre of the action. The point of the festival is to give children a day that they won’t forget and that parents will love too.
Do not miss this MUST ATTEND festival for parents and families passionate about positive play, fun & the power of the imagination!
The official charity partner of Playstival is Plan International, an international charity fighting for the rights of children, particularly girls, who live in the poorest regions of the world.
Festival goers can support Plan International by adding an optional donation when purchasing their Playstival ticket on Eventbrite or on site at the festival this August.
