Kensington CommUNITY Festival Update

We know the Festival brings much joy to many in our community as well as visitors and has been part of the fabric of the Kensington community for 12 years.

Alas, due to COVID-19, our Festival, along with public events worldwide, was cancelled in 2020 and had to be cancelled again in 2021 with the safety of our community in mind.

This was a difficult decision for Festival organiser, Unison Housing, to make for two years in a row as we know that guests, volunteers, exhibitors and entertainers look forward to coming together as a community each year. But don’t worry, we are working with our Festival partners on other ways to celebrate our diverse community together later in the year if restrictions allow. Watch this space!

In the interim we are taking this opportunity to review the future of the Festival and welcome your input. One of the successes of the Festival has been the input and ideas provided by residents and local agencies. As we move into the next phase we are seeking your input to guide this process.
