This Sunday, Sandgate will draw crowds from near and far for the 27th annual Einbunpin Festival, held at Einbunpin Lagoon this sunday from 9am-4pm. This event is a great showcase for the Northside community.
We have over 160 local community and business stalls, live entertainment over four stages, and our bridge gallery stocked with pieces by local artists and residents.
Packed with all the hallmarks of a festival - face painting, mullet toss and egg and spoon races - this year's festival will be joined by some exciting new additions such as a Quidditch workshop. The festival will kick-off with an official opening and welcome to country at 8.45am in the Festival Arena.
For the first time this year we will also have a dedicated water refill station in the Festival Arena sponsored by Veolia, so please remember to bring your reusable water bottle to cut down on waste!
Thank you to our wonderful volunteers and sponsors who make this all possible. This is promising to be a great day and I hope to see you all there!
The event program, which contains details of the different performances, can be found here.
