Eaglehawk Dahlia and Arts Festival
The Committee of the Eaglehawk Dahlia & Arts Festival is planning to conduct its Festival in 2022 with its historic 'Street Parade' being held on Saturday 19th March with the theme of "Celebrating 50 Years".
Acting President, Laurie Fitzgerald said today "Eaglehawk will once again be able to celebrate its community spirit in a range of activities that will bring people together from all walks of life in the Borough as it presents an ideal opportunity for a refreshed Festival."
"A community survey and Forum attracted a lot of participation and displayed a sense of optimism to encourage organisers to proceed. While there are still many hurdles to jump, the Festival model allows for all sorts of organisations and schools to participate in the Parade and conduct events which will not only contribute to the fun and excitement of a festival but will also allow all of those organisations to gain the benefits of fundraising and promotion of what they do." he said
"While the Festival committee conducts the 'Street Parade' it supports all the other activities with insurance, promotion and possible venues. Organisations are encouraged to get in touch with their creative ideas for the Festival. Music, film, artworks, literary awards, food, garden and sporting activities will all be included. A public meeting will be held on Monday 13th December at 7pm at the MUIOOF Hall , High Street to further plan activities. Everyone is invited."
"The committee is aware that more businesses need to be involved and perhaps a huge market fair with music before the parade could be considered in the main Street. Eaglehawk has wonderful gardens and parkland along with Mulga Bill's playground so events can be considered for all of these venues. I want to encourage new ideas." Mr Fitzgerald said.
