Let’s Celebrate Belmont Festival November 2017

The City of Belmont will once again come alive in November as we welcome you to the 10th annual Let’s Celebrate Belmont Festival – a festival for everyone! The Festival is a chance to celebrate and showcase the many wonderful attributes that make Belmont a great place to live, work and play! The Festival offers something for everyone ranging from concerts, movies, events and activities.

As part of the City of Belmont’s commitment to our Reconciliation Action Plan, which also includes holding NAIDOC events, this year the Let’s Celebrate Belmont Festival Finale will again celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, heritages and traditions. With free entry to most events and activities and only a few with a nominal fee, it’s a great opportunity to invite your friends and family from all over the Metro area – and beyond!

The Festival would not be possible without the support of our valued sponsors Perth Airport, Healthways and Act-Belong-Commit. We thank them for their continued support. Don’t forget to check out the City’s website www.belmont.wa.gov.au for any updates and changes to the festival program. So why not come along, join us and Let’s Celebrate Belmont!
