Marion celebrates


After a four year lay-off, the much-loved 'Marion Celebrates' is making a triumphant return to showcase some of the best talent City of Marion has to offer.

The biennial event, which has been a staple for Marion locals for two decades, promises an unforgettable experience at its new home - the Glandore Community Centre.

The theme for this year's 'Marion Celebrates' is "Many Cultures, One Earth," reflecting the rich diversity and unity within the community.

Kicking off at 1.30pm on Saturday, 18 November, the event will offer a dynamic and free program featuring performances, workshops, and a variety of family-friendly activities.

Sun of Africa, an African drumming ensemble, will grace the stage with their rhythmic beats, complemented by masked dancers and stilt walkers.

The Atlantic Street Band will bring the soulful sounds of Traditional Dixieland jazz, offering an eclectic mix of jazz styles that are sure to resonate with the audience.

Adding a Latin flair, Cartel Afinke, a fusion band with dancers showcasing reggaeton music from Puerto Rico, will round out the diverse musical lineup.

For the past 20 years, 'Marion Celebrates' has captivated audiences with 10 festivals held at various iconic locations in Marion.

Known for its family-friendly atmosphere, the free festival has long been celebrated for its emphasis on art, cultural experiences, and sustainability.

The Glandore Community Centre, located conveniently with tram and bus stops within a five-minute walk, encourages attendees from afar to utilize public transport, aligning with the event's commitment to sustainability.
