Home Festival returns to Kangaroo Point this Saturday
After the July rain made a swamp out of Raymond Park delaying the original date, Home Festival returns to Kangaroo Point this weekend. A day to celebrate the meaning of home, community and Brisbane’s inner-city green spaces, Home Festival returns after its inaugural event last year.
Full of community cosiness, learning and fun, this free, all-ages day out is one for all the family. Providing a platform for up-and-coming performers, this Saturday’s program is jam-packed with live music by local talent. Skilled and craft-focused artists will share their knowledge through workshops and activities, letting you get hands on in different fields – from stencil art and Bollywood dancing to domestic mending and vegan food demonstrations. Promoting creativity in the community, the festival invites kids and adults to participate in these free workshops, getting their craft on in areas outside the box of their homes.
A spoken-word program sees roving poets projecting sweet sonnets into the ears of passersby, or gives you the opportunity to perhaps perfect your haiku hand under the guidance of those who have a way with words. Suitcase Rummage will be there along with a plethora of food stalls, and you can rediscover what fun a plastic colourful ring can bring to an afternoon at the hoola-hoop jam.
Run by a passionate group of volunteers, the festival embraces the community spirit in the green surrounds of Raymond Park behind the Pineapple Hotel in Kangaroo Point this Saturday from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. And since Home Festival is a proponent of an eco world, take the bus, walk or ride your bike, particularly as parking in the area is limited.
