Last year the festival saw 2000 people in attendance so this year we’re chatting with Brisbane City Council about expanding beyond this number for a bigger and better festival! More talks, more workshops, more entertainment, more food and more fun! So here is the latest news and some exciting announcements!

Super excited to announce that OKA will be dancing us into the evening with their didge and chilled beats after the bonfire. We also have troubadour and very talented songwriter Murray Kyle singing us up to the bonfire and Winter Solstice ceremony where we celebrate the longest night of the year and the return of the light. We will have some great acts singing us through the afternoon so bring your picnic blanket or camping chairs so you can kick back and enjoy the music on the green!

This year we are planning to showcase a Zero Waste event! This is exciting and also a little challenging because we won’t be using any single use plastic disposable. So heads up – you’ll need to bring your own cup / plate / bowl / cutlery (perhaps your fave from your camping kit?) and if you forget or you’re travelling light there will be crockery available to hire for a gold coin donation and we will likely also have some awesome sustainable products available for purchase if you want to buy your kit for the next festival!

As well as a fabulous entertainment line up, our education program this year will see talks and workshops happening in three different tents throughout the afternoon in theme with the three ethics of Permaculture, which are: Earth Care; People Care and Fair Share. We are planning to bring you first-class educators and presenters in their fields of expertise to share their knowledge with you.

Our kids program is always really popular, so we are gathering together a mix of old favourites and newcomers to inspire, educate and entertain your children. We will also build on the success of last years teens program with activities specifically targeted to their unique interests and learning styles. We always aim to provide something for everyone in the family, so you can all come along and enjoy the Winter Solstice together.

We’d love you to join the tribe on Facebook, so we can keep you up-to-date with our full program as we release it in the lead up to the Winter Solstice Festival….. jump on over here and give us the big thumbs up! www.facebook.com/nscfsolsticefestival
