Lakeside Crew

Who is involved in the festival?

The Lakeside Festival provides an avenue for cultural experience engaging the local and wider community. Volunteers, local neighbourhood services, high school students and youth groups, disability groups, marketers, artists, designers, market stall holders, harvest community, food and beverage vendors, performers and participants join together to create a positive and well organised cultural event for the wider community. Since the first Lakeside Festival in 2013, thousands of people have visited the MidCoast to be part of the Festival. It is encouraging to see the local community acting as tourism ambassadors for the area and proudly showcasing their region to enhance the image of the Great Lakes and the community where we live and work.

Presented by the volunteer committee of Lakeside Festival Inc. formed in 2013. The Lakeside Festival is a not for profit event. The aim of the event has always been to promote our beautiful region by encouraging visitors to the region. Support for the festival is provided by the local Council, Business Chamber, Art Society and other community organisations.
Funds from each event are channelled directly to the following year.
