THE City of Whittlesea’s Community Festival will return this month, featuring live music, theatre performances, visual art, creative workshops and family-friendly activities.
The two-day event will feature artists and performers including Georgia Fields and The Big Lost Band ensemble, as well as market stalls, food trucks, roving entertainment, free art and craft activities and interactive dance workshops.
This year’s theme, ‘arts on the northern edge’, will celebrate the City of Whittlesea’s cultural diversity and provide an opportunity to reconnect with the local community.
Chair administrator Lydia Wilson anticipated this year’s festival would be the biggest event yet.
“After two years of limited opportunities to come together with friends and family due to the pandemic, we’re thrilled to host the Community Festival, focusing on uniting people of all ages and abilities,” she said.
“Our incredible program of live music and performances has something for everyone so come along and explore all the wonderful attractions the festival has to offer.”
The festival will be on the Civic Centre lawns and Plenty Ranges Arts and Convention Centre in South Morang on March 25 and 26. For more information and a detailed festival program, visit arts.whittlesea.vic.gov.au.
The festival is subject to change due to COVIDSafe settings at the time of the event and proof of vaccination will be required for some activities.
