Save the date! Broadmeadows Street Festival 2020 will be held on Sunday 5 April 2020.  

Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore said each year the Broadmeadows Street Festival brings Tanderrum Way in Broadmeadows to life with an amazing festival atmosphere.

“This festival grants program is a great way for the community to take part in one of the City’s most loved annual events,” Cr Moore said.

“The Broadmeadows Street Festival will take place on Sunday, 5 April 2020 and I encourage local community groups to apply for funding.

The Broadmeadows Street Festival Grants are an opportunity for eligible groups to apply for a grant of up to $2,500, which can be used to create performances or exhibits that give the wider community a chance to experience what the group has to offer. 

Councillor Moore said song, dance, poetry, theatrics, cooking demonstrations and handicrafts are all examples of how local community groups could take part in the festival next year.

“The Broadmeadows Street Festival is a wonderful family day out, where we share the many cultures that make Hume City so diverse and unique,” Cr Moore said.

“This year, the Hmong Australia Festival Inc, shared cultural dance, band performances and cooking demonstrations, Pacmania, performed traditional Sufi songs, dance, art, percussion workshops plus poetry and the THE-HE Vietnamese Language Centre ran a lantern-making workshop.

“It is through the colour and vibrancy of these community performances that the Broadmeadows Street Festival is able to be such an engaging, inspirational and fun day out for everyone.”

Local incorporated groups who would like to perform or exhibit at the festival will need to submit an application to Hume City Council by 5pm, Sunday 15 December 2019.
