This year’s Riverfest will be held on Saturday, August 30 between 11am and 3pm Koshigaya

Park, Campbelltown.

A report to Campbelltown Council at its July 29 meeting noted that a number of exciting and interactive workshops and displays will feature at the event to ‘‘ensure the environmental and multicultural education is rich and entertaining’’.

The stage entertainment will include a flamenco performance, the Sherman and Peabody stage show

based on the recently released children’s movie, a Japanese drumming group and a

children’s performance about water conservation.

In acknowledgement of the anniversary of the Campbelltown-Koshigaya Sister City

relationship, Riverfest 2014 will also feature a Japanese themed activity tent that will feature

origami craft, sushi making as well as information and a display from the Campbelltown

Koshigaya Sister Cities Association.

A range of other interactive workshops will feature at the event, based around the environment and multiculturalism.
