February 4, 2018 by  

The 2018 Homegrown Festival is set to provide a full month of fun events, workshops, adventures and performances for all ages.

Hosted by the City of Gosnells, the annual event provides an ideal opportunity for residents from Canning Vale and surrounding areas to enjoy a fun celebration of culture and arts in their own backyard.

Festivities begin with the Illuminate Night Party starring Justice Crew and Killing Heidi on February 17, and culminate with the staging of the Little Scribblers children’s art festival on March 17 and the Harmony Colour Run the following day, according to a council spokesperson.

He said the long list of activities and events will provide something for everyone to enjoy and include venues across the city.

The Popcorn Cinema Series – Moana, and the Lifeball and Leisure in Your Local Park events will be held in Canning Vale, while the Messy Play Trail will entertain youngsters in nearby Thornlie with a morning of free activities.

The variety of experiences will include everything from cubby building and growing micro-greens, to taking part in pop-up card or mind and body workshops.

Flyer printing listing the full programme of events has been undertaken and distributed to residents, as well as being available online and at the Civic Centre, Leisure World and council libraries.

The Homegrown Festival will be held from February 17 to March 18.
