Festivals in Lane Cove

 

Lane Cove Festival Submissions Now Open

If you are a community group in the Lane Cove Local Government Area, Council would like to invite you to submit your September events to be included in the 2017 Lane Cove Festival program. Submissions close Friday 26 May.
Submit your events online today!

For 25 years, this Festival was known as the Cameraygal Festival and has been an opportunity for groups to raise their profile in the community, connect with new audiences and receive free publicity for Spring events. Now in its 26th year the festival is trialling a new name and revised duration. The Festival will be marketed as Lane Cove Festival and has been shortened to take place during the month of September to give the program more impact during the busy Spring period.
