Knox Arts and Events

Saturday, 14 October 2017 - 2:30pm to Sunday, 15 October 2017 - 2:30pm
Stud Park Reserve, 40 Fulham Rd, Rowville

Stringybark focuses on ways to inform and empower the local community to make achievable changes in their daily lives that contribute to a more sustainable way of living. The activities at the event have been developed to contribute to the message.

The official opening features a Wurundjeri Welcome to Country on the Saturday at 11:30am.

Programming highlights feature a myriad of creative play spaces, including:

'The Maker Space' offering up-cycled art creations;
'IC Robotics' with their inventive gadgets and playful robotics; 'Giants of Knox' offering a messy play space where a miniature world is transformed by friendly giants;
'Jurassic Knox' where archaeology and palaeontology intersect in a massive digging space; and
'Compost and Kitchen Revolution' exploring the finer art of composting and waste free cooking.

All day entertainment across the Tribal Stage, Community Stage and Market Stage features a myriad of cultural, community and urban music, dance and vocal performances, and fascinating presentations by "Wild Action" with their Aussie critters and "Van Lifers" will inspire with their unique off-grid lifestyles.

Add a dynamic makers market, a host of community stalls, a delicious food hub, and an active-play ride zone, 2017 promises to be our best Stringybark yet!

See you there!
