Your club is invited to participate in this year’s Tuggeranong Community Festival’s classic, custom, vintage, historic and bike Display. Entry is free.
The Festival will be held on Saturday 23 November 2013 in Tuggeranong Town Park.
We are slowly building our display and last year we had the Falcon GT and MG car clubs and in previous years, the ACT Mini Car and the American Car Clubs participated, with some members travelling from Wagga Wagga and the South Coast.
We are confident that our display and swap and meet will become a major Festival event and the biggest in South Canberra.
Each year the Festival hosts a free children’s and main evening concert. This year, our headline main act will be Boom Crash Opera (https://www.facebook.com/BoomCrashOpera) supported by Canberra’s own local Latin, ska, and reggae eight piece band, Los Chavos.
There will be a free fishing competition with prizes awarded in each category and a wonderful mystery prize too. There will also be a rowing regatta with 25 crews competing for the Tuggeranong Festival Cup and social sailing and free canoe rides. Nobody will go hungry or thirsty as there will be food stalls, non-alcoholic beverages, ice cream and ferry floss.
Showground rides and amusements will be aplenty, a fly ball dog competition, petanque (boules) and a carnival of cards, boards and other games. The region’s largest ‘live’ street art exhibit and a record breaking mega corporate and sporting mascot fashion parade and meet and greet. The Festival will also include free story time, jumping castle and face painting for children, a magician and a reptile display exhibiting goannas, pythons, turtles and much more.
Celebrate our 25th Silver Jubilee birthday cake and also the Centenary of Canberra. We want to share it with you.
Don’t miss out on a great family day out.
