Environmental sustainability and Macarthur’s cultural diversity will take centre-stage at the free family event, Riverfest, held on Saturday, August 27, 2016, from 11am to 3pm.
People of all ages can try tasty treats from around the world, watch traditional dances from all corners of the globe, have a go at recycled craft projects and get some tips on sustainable gardening. Featuring interactive workshops, numerous market stalls and a host of live entertainers, the event aims to have something for everyone.
Held at Koshigaya Park in Campbelltown, the annual festival aims to focus on the natural environment, promote sustainable practices and raise cultural awareness. Originally hosted by the National Parks Association for more than 10 years, Riverfest has since grown into a vibrant showcase and is now coordinated by Campbelltown City Council in association with the National Parks Association and Macarthur Diversity Services Initiative.
Families will have the opportunity to win prizes by grabbing a copy of the Riverfest Passport and completing activities at participating stalls.
Riverfest is a drug and alcohol-free event and Koshigaya Park is fully-accessible for wheelchair users.
