Horses Birthday Kids Festival Postponed  

Rescheduled dates 29 & 30 July 2023  

Your New Tickets have been Automatically Transferred and Emailed to You  

We’re saddened to announce that the extreme weather has gotten the better of us in 2022.   

After years of disruptions, the unprecedented rain and flooding has been yet another heavy blow for festivals and events in 2022. Unfortunately the Horses Birthday site is in an unsatisfactory condition to host a kids festival. In the interests of public safety and wellbeing, we have postponed the event to 2023.  

We are so disappointed. This 3-year period has been so challenging as we have navigated everything that has been thrown at us. We understand how excited you are and how long you have waited, however we are going to have to push the event back until next year.   

what's next

2022 tickets automatically transfer to 2023, and new tickets have been emailed to all ticket holders. It’s all taken care of, so you don’t need to do anything further.  

If you are unable to attend your rescheduled date, then we are sorry. You can choose from the following options:  

1. Swap your Saturday tickets for Sunday tickets (or vice versa)  

2. Transfer your tickets to friends  

3. Apply for a full refund (minus booking fees) at any time before April 30, 2023.  

Ticket holders have been emailed instructions on how to manage their booking and choose one of these options.   

All camping and accommodation bookings for the weekend can be transferred, stored as credit for use on any of Glenworth Valley’s activities or accommodation or refunded (minus booking fees). Simply email with your name, booking dates and booking ID with your choice.  

If you have enquiries to do with the Horses Birthday Kids Festival, please send us an email at rather than calling. Please be mindful that it is likely to take a number of weeks to fully respond to all enquiries and refund requests, so please be patient while we get to you.      

We appreciate your understanding and support.  

Stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you in 2023.
