Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

NEXT month is go­ing to be huge in the City of Bel­mont as it hosts the Let’s Cel­e­brate Bel­mont Fes­ti­val.

In its ninth year, the an­nual fes­ti­val has con­certs, ac­tiv­i­ties and demon­stra­tions. Events in­clude two Movies Un­der The Stars screen­ings, Jazz in the Park, Pop Art Fi­esta and the Fes­ti­val Fi­nale.

Bel­mont chief ex­ec­u­tive Stu­art Cole said it was go­ing to be packed full of events.

“The fes­ti­val is go­ing to be big­ger than ever and I en­cour­age ev­ery­one to come along,” he said.

“As part of the City’s Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Ac­tion Plan, which in­cludes hold­ing Naidoc events, this year the fes­ti­val fi­nale con­cert will cel­e­brate Abo­rigi- nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der cul­tures, her­itages and tra­di­tions and recog­nise lo­cal Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der peo­ples’ con­tri­bu­tion to our com­mu­nity.

“With free en­try to most events and ac­tiv­i­ties and only a few with a nom­i­nal fee, it’s a great op­por­tu­nity to come along.”
