Northey Street City Farm, Windsor
With the cooler mornings and the blanket coming out of the cupboard, it’s nature’s way of telling us that it’s coming around to Winter Solstice Festival time again. This year we will get to celebrate together on the actual longest night of the year, June 22nd.
2019 is also our 25th Birthday here at Northey Street City Farm, so we are keen to create a festival that will inspire you to celebrate with us what has been, while focusing on what is to come. How can we all contribute to creating a sustainable future worth celebrating? It’s time to get real!
To inspire you, we are busy booking all our great performers and educators for another full program of live music, sustainable living talks, workshops and more. Our market stalls will offer everything from upcycled fashion to beautiful vertical gardens; and make sure you partake in some of the yummy food and drinks available to keep your bellies full and warm. And definitely join us for our famous bonfire, lantern parade and Winter Solstice ceremony.
The Winter Solstice Program will have something for the whole family. We have a great day planned with our Nature Arts team creating fun and interactive activities in the kid space and your teens/tweens will have access to a range of activities and workshops to suit their unique interests. Meanwhile, you can be relaxing on the green listening to our great line up of local live music acts, doing a hands on workshop or heading to one of our four education tents to learn more about how to make the changes and choices that will help you live in alignment with your values and care for this Earth.
To do our part, we will be building on our previous successes with our goal of being a zero waste event and we invite you to help us make this a reality by doing your part by remembering your keeper cups and eating kits. This year we are also aiming to work with Brisbane City Council to ensure you have public transport options for getting to and from the festival and we encourage active travel with our bike racks at the gate.
So put Winter Solstice Festival in your diary for 22 June 2019 and stay tuned for more announcements as the program develops.
