Make, do, play and connect at this sustainability focused family festival
The Knox City Council's Stringybark Festival is all about celebrating the local community and sharing ways in which you can make small changes to your day-to-day life to make it more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
Highlights from the festival include the Maker Space, where you're invited to resurrect things that are often thrown out, all with some hands-on help from local artists; Giants of Knox, an participatory art installation which re-creates the Knox community on a small scale; and Backyard Buzz, a showcase of local welders, inventors and makers' work. Meet the team behind the Compost Revolution and find out how you can make small changes in your kitchen that will make a big difference to the environment, as well as Van Lifers, wanderlusters who live their life on the road in a small four-wheel home. The festival will also open with a Wurundjeri Welcome to Country.
Kids can become pint-sized palaeontologists over at Jurassic Knox and will be entertained by fun rides at the fairground. There will also be three stages with live music, dance and performances.
