Bringing the community together for a night of fun

This must be one of the biggest and most popular street parties in Brisbane. The Sherwood Community Festival is a free family event, which keeps getting bigger and better each year. There will be heaps of kids' activities including rides, slides, Santa, face painting, animals and a library. In addition, there will be all the festival favourites such as live entertainment, food trucks and market stalls galore.

The organisers have said that they are really excited about the upcoming festival and are looking forward to welcoming the extended community to Sherwood again for this year's celebrations.
