After years of lockdown and Covid restrictions, the annual Knox Festival came back with a
bang to the Wally Tew oval on 4 March. Barbara Oehring took photographs.
Knox Cr Sorina Grasso writes about it enthusiastically:
Of course, for our biggest annual event, I had a fantastic day joining Marcia Timmers-Leitch – Mayor Knox City Council and fellow Councillors Cr Meagan Baker and Cr Susan Laukens at the Knox Festival on Saturday 4 March.
From the greatest prosperity toss in the Southern Hemisphere with Lillie Giang, The Food Affectionist, to the Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony by Wurundjeri man Uncle Thane Garvey, to the many community groups and huge range of services that Knox has to offer being showcased, not to mention the fantastic performances, the rides, food vans and other amusements, it was a tremendous event.
It was also great to see the primary school buntings and art creations, remembering the delightful days I used to go with my daughter Angie to see her own school’s work being proudly exhibited.
Many thanks to the Knox Arts and Events team for organising another successful Knox Festival.
