The Vic Park Summer Street Party Returns

The Vic Park Summer Street Party returns on Sunday 19 November and promises to deliver another great series of attractions to suit all ages and tastes.

A crowd of 50,000 is expected to take over the Albany Highway café strip between Dane and Mint Streets and right up in to the Park Centre in East Victoria Park in a culturally diverse event that aims to bring together the entire community.

Local community group The Vic Park Collective will again join with event organisers UpBeat Events to bring to life the village-style street party for the Town of Victoria Park.

Victoria Park Mayor Trevor Vaughan said the end-of-year event was a demonstration of the best of the Town’s community.

“It’s fun, dynamic, colourful and full of Town residents who enjoy the coming together as a community at our biggest event on the annual calendar,” Mayor Vaughan said. “It’s an event absolutely not to be missed.”

Highlights of the Vic Park Summer Street Party include live music ranging from jazz to Indi Rock to Bollywood and brass, with entertainment stages featuring bands, DJs, big bands, soloists and local performers.

There will also be tons of food with alfresco offerings from local restaurants and cafes alongside pop-up street bars.

The organisers promise heaps of family fun including Kanyana Wildlife, a special kids zone of free activities, face painting and plenty more fun for the kids, plus there will be weird and wonderful art activations throughout the precinct.

Mayor Vaughan said the Vic Park Summer Street Party tapped the strong sense of community that life in the Town represented.

“Victoria Park had maintained its distinctive appeal by embracing the new and connecting with the old,” Vaughan said. “The urban village of Vic Park is fast becoming a popular place to live, work and visit.

“The Vic Park Summer Street Party showcases our progressive restaurant, retail and social scene and a backdrop of unique historic charm.”

A full program will be released at a later date, but you can keep up to date with the developments via their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
