The North Shore’s popular Emerge Festival is back this spring from 1 September – 11 October with a collection of colourful and creative COVID-safe community events to celebrate the emergence of spring.
This year’s festival features a series of smaller events including art exhibitions, workshops, food and drink, outdoor activities, digital events and plenty for the kids.
“Emerge Festival is a time when the north shore comes alive and emerges from winter to enjoy the sunshine and outdoor activities and discover new groups and activities. In these difficult and uncertain times, it’s all the more important for us to support local and I’m delighted that the Emerge Festival is providing the opportunity to do just that,” Mayor Giles-Gidney said.
Enjoy connecting with nature in a guided torchlight bush walk, pre schoolers bush scramble and orienteering taster sessions. Events for the body and soul include guided meditation, a health and wellness day and ageless Taekwondo.
Food and drink lovers will delight in a virtual steak and Shiraz barbeque class, cask conditioned real ale festival and gin distillery tour.
The kids can learn new skills in music, coding, STEM and baseball workshops while culture vultures will enjoy exhibitions, films and ceramics classes. The popular Pet Festival has gone digital this year too.
Willoughby City Council is working with event organisers to ensure events are COVID-safe. Keep an eye on the website for changes. See the full list of events and find out more at www.emergefestival.com.au
