The Whittlesea Community Festival will have a new home and a new look this year.

The annual festival has been moved from its traditional home in the Whittlesea Public Gardens to the Whittlesea council offices in South Morang.

It has also been transformed into a day-only event, meaning there will be no night activities or fireworks this year.

Councillors voted in August last year to relocate the festival from the public gardens, where it has been held for 20 years, to the civic centre.

However, the new location will be for one year only, as the councillors decided last November to host the 2019 festival in Lalor.

This year’s event theme is Make, Move, Eat, Play and Listen, with something from each of the categories on offer for everyone.

The festival will feature some of Melbourne’s finest food trucks, as well as a theatre show, a yoga session, performances from local cultural groups and a kids’ disco.

It’s on Sunday, March 18, from 10am-5pm.
