We're bringing Mali to Morisset! Come and listen to the heart-thumping rhythm of the djembe drum, played by a local expert and even give it a go yourself.
Or, why not jump on a slackline in the circus play space and just see how really good ( or not so good) your balance is
Marvel at the talent of members of our local high school as they unveil their collaboratively painted mural. and add your own little piece of positivity and creativity to it.
A creative corner set up so your little ones can unleash their own creative genius. A paper plane challenge, massage angels and meditation.
These are just a few of the things we have in store for you.
Check out the rest!
Why not try something new, or brush up on your skills.
Ever wanted to know how to weave your own cloth? Well you don’t need a big, expensive loom to do that. Come and join in a belt weaving session to learn how it’s done. Or perhaps Macramé has always intrigued you but you don’t want to buys one at exorbitant prices, we have a local expert to show you how to make your very own wall hanging or plant pot hanger.
Get the youngsters hands dirty and they will create their very own mini fairy garden or indoor jungle. Or what about creating your very own Chrissy baubles or cards rather than buying those mass-produced ones.
We’re sure you will find something new and exciting to add to your creative toolkit.

With performances from international Singer-songwriter Kelly Hope, Threepence, a local Ukele trio, well know local musician Jye Sharp, the Toronto Junior Brass Band, Newcastle based, Big Jarda, Westlakes Concert Band, Clyde Street Band, the talented local singer Nishka Priest and the roaring sounds of rock group Distant Thunder.
Community & Service Groups
We believe it is very important for all-round wellbeing to feel good about yourself, feeling involved, connecting with like-minded people, being active and feeling like you are making a contribution, and at times having someone to reach out to when things get a little too much. But we don't always know what services or groups are there to help.
A number of key service and community groups will be at the festival and sharing information about what they have to offer.
Make sure you stop by and check them out
Our Artisan marketplace is an intimate showcase of quality handmade products mostly from locals within the Lake Macquarie and surrounding districts.
