Manningham Family Festival at Finns

Come join in the fun at the ever-popular Manningham Family Festival at Finns Reserve.

Now in its 17th year, this annual community event features the famous camel rides, as well as kid’s attractions like pony rides, a jumping castle, a merry-go-round, and a baby animal farm.

On stage, we will celebrate our community’s talent with six hours of performances from over 120 local adult and children entertainers. There will also be around 50 community and craft stalls, and a wide selection of food stalls to enjoy.

Highlights of last year’s entertainment included:

  • The elegant and graceful Manningham Chinese Senior Citizens Dancers
  • The lively Super Mande African Drummers
  • The young rockers from Leaders of Rock Music School
  • Budding stars from CK Singing School
  • The swing music of D.R. Big Band

This day is always fun for all the family: from the babies and toddlers, to bigger children, teenagers, parents, grandparents and even the dog!

This year’s festival will be held on Sunday, November 15th, from 9 am to 4 pm. The event is brought to the community by the Rotary Club of Templestowe, and entry is by gold coin donation.  Proceeds go back to the Manningham community and are applied to various local projects.

Mark your calendars and join the fun!

Please note that this is a non-smoking event.
