TORONTO, Sept. 8, 2015 /CNW/ - Back by popular demand, Corus Entertainment's Treehouse Big Day Out 2, presented by Sunwing.ca, is returning for an exciting live event jam-packed with fun for the whole family. Hosted by Treehouse, Canada's #1 specialty channel for young children, the two-day live event will feature exciting activities for kids of all ages and special performances by headline act, The Wiggles, and Treehouse's own children's music duo, Splash'N Boots.
Taking place at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto on September 12 and 13, 2015, Treehouse Big Day Out 2 will offer two separate ticketed events each day – a morning event starting from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with stage shows from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and an afternoon event from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. with stage shows from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. This special event also will be televised on Treehouse on October 10th at 5:10 p.m. EST/PST.

Treehouse Big Day Out will mark the first stop on The Wiggle's Canadian tour where they will sing songs from their brand new CD and DVD, "Rock & Roll Preschool" that will also be featured in the new season of their hit TV series airing on Treehouse. Joined on stage by their lovable friends Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus, founding member Anthony Field (Blue Wiggle), Emma Watkins (Yellow Wiggle), Simon Pryce (Red Wiggle) and Lachlan Gillespie (Purple Wiggle) can't wait to deliver a rocking good time for families at Big Day Out.
Since joining the Treehouse family in February, Splash'N Boots have become a household name for families with young children across Canada. The JUNO Award-nominated duo bring the joy of music and dance to the stage with the same fun and engaging energy that entertains little ones in the short Splash'N Boots episodes that air throughout the day on Treehouse.
In addition to all the live performances on tap, Treehouse Big Day Out 2 will feature a BIG array of fun-filled family activities, including meet and greet photo opportunities with tons of fan-favourite Treehouse characters – including Posie from the new hit series, Little Charmers!, face painting, crafts and interactive play stations from Play-Doh, My Little Pony, Equestrian Girls, Woodbine Fantasy Fair, Kumon and more! Kids also can receive free hairstyling from Melonhead and sample delicious treats from Saputo. All attending kids will take home a special Treehouse Big Day Out 2 festival program full of activities, colouring pages and coupons!
For even more family fun, Treehouse Big Day Out 2 attendees have the chance to enter to win an exciting vacation for four to Grand Memories Varadero in Cuba, courtesy of Sunwing.ca! For more information and to enter the contest, visit Sunwing.ca/bigdayout.
