Hear a VoiceFM interview about the Festival on Monday 23 October with Sarah Greenwood-Smith from the Festival Committee (18 minutes).

Local community groups will come together to offer a sausage sizzle, pancakes and cold drinks, each for a gold coin donation. Entertainment will include performances from students at Brown Hill Kindergarten, Caledonian Primary School and Woodman's Hill, a campus of Ballarat Secondary College. Family friendly activities such as face-painting and jumping castles will put smiles on lots of faces.

In addition to information stands with information from many Brown Hill Community Groups, the City of Ballarat will have a display about the new 'Brown Hill Local Area Plan' and 'Brown Hill Walking Maps' projects. This will be one of many opportunities to have your say.

So save the date to make sure you can join our community for this award-winning event, celebrating all that we love about Brown Hill.
