FamGoFest 2019: Quality Family Time for the Holiday


DECEMBER 22, 2019

Tangerang. The Family Go Festival is being held at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition BSD in Tangerang, offering a fun and educational end-of-year holiday entertainment for the family.

The FamGoFest 2019 is themed "Kingdom of Happiness" and runs from Dec. 19 to Dec. 29. Located at the convention center's Hall 1 to 3A, the largest playpark festival in Indonesia can fit in up to 75,000 visitors and offer all of them a chance to explore the world of imagination. 

In its second year, this collaboration between Hype Festival and Berlian Entertainment also involves Traveloka Xperience as an online ticketing partner.

"There will be entertainment, education and a host of activities, with more than 50 games available for children of all ages. We even have our own jingle, "#BuatMamadanPapaHappy" (Make Mom and Dad Happy), for the children to sing along to," project director and FamGoFest creator Dino Hamid said in a press release on Friday.

The festival also features parades and carnivals where the event's mascots, the Latamotchis, mingle with characters from children's animated series such as the Badanamu, Tayo the Little Bus, Robocar Poli and Nussa & Rara.
