Profits from the forthcoming Autumn Equinox Festival will benefit the Red Cross Bush Fire Appeal. The Festival will be held on Saturday March 21st in the gardens at historic Ginninderra Village, O’Hanlon Place, Gold Creek (Nicholls.)
The festival will not only celebrate the Autumn Equinox but also provide a great day out for people of all ages with a host of Canberrans donating their time and effort. The day will include drumming, dancing, music, tarot readings, workshops and an eclectic market.
The Festival is free of charge to the public, and collection tins will be scattered throughout the Festival grounds and at all market stalls, performances and workshops. People are encouraged to donate as much as they can afford.
