Fawkner Festa is a free outdoor community event that celebrates and showcases the vibrant and diverse community of Fawkner. The event includes performances, community stallholders, food vendors, children's activities and workshops.
Since its beginning in 2008, Fawkner Festa has become a highlight in the Moreland events calendar, as a way for residents to come together, and experience all that Fawkner has to offer.
With the vaccination targets and roadmap released on 19 September 2021 by the State Government, we have made the decision to cancel Fawkner Festa which was scheduled for 24 October 2021.
While we won’t be able to get together in real life, we will instead produce a COVID-safe community arts project for Fawkner, which will be an opportunity to showcase Fawkner’s creative arts community through a tangible outcome.
We look forward to celebrating the next Fawkner Festa with you in 2022.
