Friday, February 17, 2023

The City of Whittlesea Community Festival is back this March, bigger and better than ever.

Join us on Sunday 19 March from 11am to 5pm at the Civic Centre precinct in South Morang and enjoy live performances, free activities, art installations, live music, market stalls, delicious food, roving performers, cultural activities and much more.

This year’s event will also include a free Pet Expo, a Sustainability Lane where you can learn tips and tricks about living more sustainably, and for the first time we’ll be announcing the recipients of our City of Whittlesea Community Awards live on stage.

City of Whittlesea Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said the event promised to be a celebration of community.

“We are thrilled to be presenting such a busy and fun event to our community this year,” she said.

“I am looking forward to celebrating this year’s theme “The World Around Us” and enjoying so much of what our diverse community has to offer.

“I am also looking forward to presenting our Community Awards and recognising those who have gone above and beyond to make the City of Whittlesea a wonderful place to live.”

The festival will showcase a range of performers live on stage including singers Kylie Auldist and Dave Arden and jazz vocalist Fem Belling, Dream Team and many more local performers. 

Festival goers can also enjoy free local performances on stage at the Plenty Ranges Art and Convention Centre (PRACC) throughout the day.

And PRACC will also be hosting a special Community Festival performance the night before with Astrid and Otto bringing their exciting cabaret show to South Morang.
