Marion Celebrates Festival

 The 2019 festival was the highlight event of the first ever Marion Fringe Hub, Saturday 23 February, 5pm - 9pm at the Marion Cultural Centre.

People filled the street and danced to Bollywood beats in the biggest Flash mob ever held in Marion. Participants in the Flash mob were beaming with joy, saying it was amazing to tick off this activity on their bucket list.

This award winning, free, biennial community festival with the theme Many Cultures, One Earth, celebrates our community diversity and spirit through market stalls, food trucks, pop up bar, outdoor dining, main stage, roving performances, workshops and many more activities and surprises for all ages and interests.
