StoryArts Festival Ipswich is a much anticipated biennial festival attended by children and families. It provides an extensive program that includes opportunities to meet authors, illustrators and storytellers. It has exhibitions of illustrations, workshops and a fun program for families after school. All sessions for children are free.
