Knox Festival

The Expo ferris wheel and other rides at Knox Festival

Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 March 2017

Wally Tew Reserve, Ferntree Gully (Melway 74 B5)

At this year's Knox Festival we joyfully celebrate under the theme Home Sweet Home.

They say that home is where the heart is and for the big hearted residents of Knox we invite you to enjoy two big days out.

There will be dozens of activities for all ages to sink your teeth into: art and craft, music and live performance, interactive installations, community presentations, stallholder delights, kitchen cook ups, The Knox Gift, The Knox Factor, a giant fireworks display and the ever expanding Twilight Cinema.

So, take a step into and a bite out of Knox Festival 2017 and help celebrate the great things, big and small that make your backyard such a vibrant and engaging place to live, work and play.

Knox Factor 2017!
