We are deeply disappointed to announce that Living Smart Festival 2021 will not proceed in September, due to COVID-19 and subsequent public health restrictions.
Living Smart Festival is one of Australia’s largest sustainability-themed festivals, and a landmark event on the region’s social calendar.
However, one of the fundamentals of ‘living smart’ is doing what you can to keep friends, family and our community safe, and in this case that means cancelling this year’s festival.
Sadly, Feast for the Senses presented by Greater Bank, has also been cancelled.
We apologise to all our amazing sponsors, stallholders and presenters, and to the thousands of people in our community who over the past 11 years have made Living Smart Festival such a special event.
Planning is also underway to host other popular elements of the festival, including the native plant giveaways and the Allambi Care school Garden Bed Competition, in alternative formats over coming months.
And we’re already looking forward to Living Smart Festival 2022. Fingers crossed we can finally return to normal programming by then!
Stay tuned for more details.
