The Sandringham Festival has been a key event for the Sandringham community for 20 years. Occurring in spring every year, this year the festival is planned for Saturday 28th October 2023. Sandringham Festival is a fun, family event created by the Sandringham Business Association to highlight the shops in the area and bring the community together. Naturally, being Sandringham, there is plenty of delicious food on offer, as well as entertainment and a variety of stalls. The event has a real community feel with lots of free fun activities on offer and performances from local school groups as well as local musicians.
In 2022 SPiCE curated our own section of the festival on Calgary Road. We organised fun family activities, including giant street games, giving out baby banana plants and marigold seeds as well as music and entertainers. It was a great opportunity for us to hear the thoughts and views of the local community and get feedback on our projects, as well as ideas for new initiatives but most of all it is just a great day out!
