About Us

Kids Day Out Variety Show has been coming to over 23 towns/cities throughout New Zealand for more than ten years. This annual event was established to provide children with special needs or children due to circumstances outside of their control may require some additional focus and support for a period of time, and their families with an opportunity to participate in a LIVE Variety Show performance. This is something that appears to happen less and less in the age of technology, so through the Kids Day Out Variety Show the families get to sit down and take in the amazing performances.

We strive each year to bring national and also international entertainers into the community. We present acts that cater for children 5-15 years old and always add in something a little bit more for those that are young at heart. Many of our Acts over the years are well recognised through their work in TV or live performances in other shows.

These events are focused on creating a safe and fun environment for the children to relax and enjoy just being a kid, even if it is for only a brief moment, enabling them to forget about other things they may be dealing with. In addition to the Variety Show performance we are lucky that so many businesses get behind us providing free merchandise that adds more to the event as some of the children will go home with something given to them specially by one of the entertainers.

We are always out there scouting for new entertainers and acts each year to ensure we bring the best line-up to each Kids Day Out Variety Show we present.

Kids Day Out Variety Show proudly also supports Heart Kids New Zealand through our events. This is a fantastic organisation working with families and children born with heart defects in all the communities/regions the Kids Day Out Variety Show goes. Heart Kids is the only organisation in New Zealand dedicated to improving the lives of these children and their families across New Zealand.www.heartkids.org.nz
