Knox Festival celebrates community life

The largest annual event on the Knox events calendar is back with the return of the Knox Festival on Saturday 5 March at Wally Tew Reserve in Ferntree Gully.

The daytime program, from 10am to 5pm, will feature stage performances, arts play, kids’ activities, amusements, stalls, food vendors, roving performers and interactive workshops.

A highlight of this year’s event will be the extended twilight program from 5pm to 10pm, featuring live music, amusements, food trucks and a fireworks finale.

Knox City Council Mayor, Cr Susan Laukens said it was fantastic to once again be able to come together as a community for the major event.

“I invite everyone to come along and enjoy the Knox Festival, a free community event for the people of Knox and beyond to come together and celebrate community life,” she said.

“It’s great to be able to come together as a community again in person after having to cancel last year’s event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Knox Festival will be the first large scale festival back in the community since it last ran in 2020.

“I’m looking forward to everyone celebrating the safe return to community life in Knox, with lots of activities for the whole family.”

Family activities include interactive workshops, thrilling rides, arts play, amazing stage programs and ‘come and try’ spaces for children to have a go at cricket, football, netball, tennis and soccer.

“The exciting program will showcase the abundance of talent and wonderful local businesses we have here in Knox in addition to the incredible local community groups and volunteers involved in the event,” Cr Laukens said.

“The community stage will feature a range of our local performers, multicultural organisations, school groups and other creative organisations.

“There will also be a canopy stage featuring a jam-packed program of singer songwriters, buskers, folk bands and other awesome music.

“A food court will be located right next to the canopy stage, while a global kitchen will offer delightful dishes presented by our local multicultural groups.”

The Knox Festival is on Saturday 5 March from 10am-10pm at Wally Tew Reserve in Ferntree Gully.

This is a COVIDSafe event in line with current Victorian rules for outdoor events.
