Hawkesbury Fest set to go ahead this year – call for stallholders

Council’s Hawkesbury Fest, which had to be cancelled last year because of Covid, is going ahead this August and the call has gone out for storeholders, musicians and food sellers to get on board.

The festival is held as part of Local Government week and in the Hawkesbury the theme this year is ‘Locally Led”, and that means, according to council, they will “showcase a range of services that are important to help build a stronger, more resilient community”.

The event will be held at Windsor’s Governor Phillip Park on August 8 and will include an official thank-you to the SES units which played such a significant role during the March floods.

Hawkesbury Fest is a free event with rides, craft activities, face painting, roving entertainment, workshops, food, giveaways, community groups and market stalls.

The event with also showcase the completion of what council call Stage Two of the playground at Governor Phillip Park, which features $177,000 in new equipment including a double flying fox, new climbing structure for older children, and a new picnic shelter with tables and chairs.

“This will be an extra special event for all of us; we have been through so much as a community, the latest being the one in 50 years flood, and yes, we are so proud that, while we are still in recovery, we are stronger than ever through adversity,” said the Mayor.
