THERE will be plenty on offer during the Out in the Open Festival to keep the whole family entertained, and with the event celebrating its fifth year, it’s one not to be missed.

Throughout the three and half day festival, 13 events will provide plenty of family fun entertainment, from cabaret shows, glamour party, big community lunch and information sessions to lunches and a film screening of The Queen of Ireland.

Festival director, Damian Stevens said, “This year we really have something for everyone. Whether it’s the big carnival day in the Queens Gardens, where there will be a petting zoo, jumping castle, food, market stalls and live, local entertainment or events including a brunch, dinners, mediation or the new edition on Sunday afternoon of a choir recital, when I say something for everyone, I really mean it.

“The festival is about celebrating community diversity. We are expecting hundreds of locals and visitors enjoying the celebrations.”

The Out in the Open Festival will run on November 3, 4, 5 and 6. For a full list of events and event location details, or to purchase a Festival Pass, visit http://outintheopen.org.au/?page_id=1278
