Harvest Festival

_FUN7290Next up in the City of Kingston’s Season of Festivals is Harvest Festival, scheduled for Saturday, 7th May at Bicentennial Park in Chelsea. This year, Harvest is celebrating its 10th anniversary and will be headlined by Aussie breakthrough performers Stonefield.

The four sisters hailing from rural Victoria won the Triple J Unearthed High contest in 2010 and have been going from strength to strength on the international festival circuit.

“This is our final event for the season and is always a crowd-favourite,” the Mayor, Cr. Bearsley, said.

Harvest also features:

  • Green Hub featuring innovations in sustainable practices and live a better, greener life,
  • Harvest Kitchen offering cooking demonstrations from some of the best local chefs,
  • a host of performers including The Age Hall of Fame musician Australian music icon Mick Thomas plus The Ian Archibald Band presenting their unique brand of country-rock,
  • up and coming local acts presenting acoustic sets at the Jam Café.

The 2016 Harvest Festival has moved from its traditional location at Roy Dore Reserve due to construction of the Carrum Family and Children’s Centre and will instead take place at Chelsea’s Bicentennial Park.

Entry is $2 per person or $5 per family, with further details at kingston.vic.gov.au/harvest
