Our backyard community festival

Our backyard community festival

Friday, February 28, 2020

Put Sunday 15 March in your diary for the City of Whittlesea Community Festival at Whittlesea Public Gardens, Lalor.

The theme this year, Our Backyard, will celebrate the gatherings, games and gardens that are part of life in both private backyards and community parks.

With the development of apartments and denser living, the traditional image of the Australian backyard is changing.

Our Backyard will celebrate the many cultures that make up our community and the different ways we use and look after our recreational, social and restful spaces.

With food, live music, dance, art, free kid’s activities, backyard games, roving entertainers, chillout area and rides there will be something for the whole family.

A free bus will run to and from Thomastown station, via Pacific Epping.

When: Sunday 15 March, 11am-5pm

Where: 157 Barry Road, Lalor

Cost: Free
