Festival of Mosman

Festival of Mosman returns

Posted Friday 08 September 2017

Mosman’s biennial festival returns next month with 50 community and cultural events including open-air concerts, a rolling public art program, art exhibitions, an outdoor cinema and environmental activities.

Celebrating the best of Mosman, its stunning beaches and harbour lifestyle, vibrant arts experiences, fine dining and shopping and community feel, the festival will kick off with the HMAS Penguin Freedom of Entry parade through Mosman’s streets and an evening Festival Opening Concert on Balmoral Beach on Friday 13 October and wrap up 10 days later with the ever-popular Pet’s Day Out.

Other highlights of the festival, which spans the 70th Mosman Art Prize exhibition and the 75th anniversary of HMAS Penguin, include the annual Children’s Fair, Concert by the Beach and, following the success of recent outdoor cinemas, a special screening of the LEGO Batman Movie on the Village Green.

All Mosman Council-run events are free of charge and most community-organised events are also free. Fees apply to a small number of activities.
