The City of Whittlesea’s beloved Community Festival will return to South Morang on 25 and 26 March 2022 with an exciting line-up of live music, theatre performances, visual art, creative workshops, and family-friendly activities.

The festival’s theme, arts on the northern edge, celebrates the City’s rich cultural diversity and provides a much-welcomed opportunity to reconnect with your local community.

The two-day event will showcase talented artists and performers including Mahalia Barnes + The Soul Mates, Rebel: a circus and music extravaganza, Georgia Fields, The Big Lost Band ensemble, The Alphabet of Awesome Science, and more!

The lawns of the Civic Centre will come alive with markets stalls, food trucks, roving entertainment, free art and craft activities, and interactive dance workshops.

City of Whittlesea Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said that this year’s Community Festival would be the City’s biggest and most spectacular 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,” Ms Wilson 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 2022 Community Festival will be held on the Civic Centre lawns and Plenty Ranges Arts & Convention Centre (PRACC) at 25 - 35 Ferres Boulevard, South Morang.
