Riverfest 2010

Riverfest is an annual event held at Koshigaya Park. It's aim is to promote environmental awareness and multiculturalism. There are creative and educational workshops available along with entertainment and internationally inspired food stalls.

This is a great informative event to take children to learn about our environment, resources and community organisations, as well as our local wildlife. You might even be able to smell koala poo!

A highlight of the event is the boat race where competing teams race along a dry 'riverbed'. The boats are made from recycled material, often on the day, and it's always fun to watch which teams will arrive at the finish line with their boats still intact.

This year, Riverfest will be held on Sunday 12th September from 10am until 3.30 in the afternoon. For more information, check out Campbelltown Council's website.

The Campbelltown Show

The Campbelltown Show has been running for 111 years. It's now being organised by a new private company after the much publicised winding up of the Show Society last year. The new Campbelltown show will have a different format but will be held at it's traditional home in Menangle Park on the 4th to 5th of September.

So mark the date in your diary because entry prices are only $1o per person and children under 3 are free.
