Hi Permies,

There is a great free event coming up called ‘Groat Street Festival’ on the 25th October, I guess its a bit like Hulbert St was for Freo.
Faerie Cara (Eco Faeries) has worked hard for a few years with our community to create an annual northern suburbs Community Run Festival and this year we have got it right. Great venue, 4 stages of entertainment, kids entertainment and well rounded appeal.
You can see the workshops and timetables alone are a great opportunity but there is also 40 plus stalls, sustainability, up-cycling, craft, community gardens and transition towns, food, and kids fun.
It will be a great ‘old fashion’ community event the way town fairs used to be.

We would love you to come along, share the poster wide and spread the news, or if you are able volunteer some time to help it run smoothly.
There are many roles of varying levels of knowledge required, something for everyone.
