"Positivity is expressed through the entertainment and performer, the music, the art and the collective energy that is experienced when so many people congregate in a long-sacred place, Leederville". This is some of the reasons behind the Leederville Carnival Event each year.
The first Leederville Carnival was held in 2012 by Leederville Connect, who, along with The City of Vincent created a community event that showcased all the great things that made up Leederville and it's lifestyle.
With the help of local events and entertainment company "The Funk Factory", and funded by the local community and the City of Vincent, the first Light Up Leederville Carnival was held along Oxford and Newcastle streets with over 24,000 people attending.
In 2013, the Carnival grew with almost 50,000 people attending, before growing once again to over 80,000 in 2014 and 2015.
Everything that makes this event great is worked out and done with the existing places and the community that makes up Leederville.
