Can you believe it’s almost September already?! Well it is! This means the Cronulla Spring Festival is just around around the corner! We’re hoping September is a dryer month than August, we’d love the sun to shine on this glorious weekend!
The Cronulla Spring Festival will be held on 13th & 14th September. The Sutherland Shire’s biggest annual celebration welcomes all! There will be plenty of entertainment from Cronulla Plaza to the beach with fun activities for kids, market stalls and bargains from local stores, as well as great coffee and food to keep you going!
Entertainment The Pavilion Stage will host live shows and musicians throughout the weekend, including:
Kirrawee High Stage Band
Sea Naturals Capella Choir
South American Pan Pipes
There will be plenty of entertainment for the little ones as well, including Despicable Me2, Mr. Potato Head and Mr. Peabody and Sherman.
Kids Corner At the southern end of Cronulla St (near the train station) the kids will be delighted by a whole heap of activities, including:
Animal Farm ($3 entry)
The Fun House (free)
Get Wild animal shows and displays including reptiles, turtles and a baby croc! (free)
NSW Fisheries ‘Get Hooked’
Plenty of rides
Pony rides and kids craft activities in Monro Park
Wellbeing Fair Chill out in Monro Park and get your hands on a number of natural products and watch the entertainers supplied by A Touch Of Eden while the kids take pony rides around the gardens!
Show & Shine Overlooking North Cronulla Beach, Peryman Square will be home to plenty of classic cars for the RSL Motoring Enthusiasts Club Show & Shine event.
Cronulla Design Ideas Competition The Mayor of the Sutherland Shire will announce the winners of the Design Ideas Competition, best of luck to all who entered!
Road Closures & Parking If you’re leaving your car on Cronulla St or Surf Rd on Friday night, make sure you move it before 4am! Cronulla St and Surf Rd will be closed from 4am Saturday morning until 7pm Sunday night. Parking will be scarce so if you’re driving be prepared for a long walk (unless you’re lucky enough to score a top spot!) otherwise jump on the train and you’ll arrive right in the hub of all the activity!
It’s that time of year again! The 2013 Cronulla Spring Festival will kick off on Saturday 14th September at 10am and conclude on Sunday 15th September at 4pm.
This year the Cronulla Spring Festival is all about embracing our beach lifestyle with comic lifeguards, beach fashions, a surf rider and giant seagulls. Fingers crossed this beautiful Spring weather will continue!
Cronulla will come alive over the weekend with over 120 market stalls set to take up the Mall and Surf Rd with plenty of activities in Monro Park & Dunningham Park planned.
The Pavilion Stage
Head on down to the Pavilion Stage for live shows, entertainment and musicians performing throughout the weekend including:
The New Adventures of Peter Pan
Ronald McDonald & Friends Show
Kirrawee High School Band
Royal Australian Navy Band
Sea Naturals Capella Choir
Travel down to the southern end of the Mall for great, low-cost kids activities including the much-loved animal farm, mini golf, and face painting.
Don’t forget about the Wellbeing Fair in Monro Park, the RSL Motoring Enthusiasts Club’s Show & Shine event near the giant slide on Surf Rd, the Sutherland Shire Marine & Boat Show on the beach front at North Cronulla (Dunningham Park & Peryman Square) and The Arts Theatre in Surf Rd celebrating their 50th birthday with an open house viewing over the weekend.
Cronulla St & Surf Rd will be closed from 4am on Saturday 14th September until 7pm on Sunday 15th September, so don’t leave your car parked in the Mall when you head out on Friday night! Surf Lane will remain open. Please keep in mind that parking will be almost impossible, consider catching the train or the bus if possible!
My plan is to vote as soon as the polling booths open this weekend then head to the Mall for Spring Fair, then the Marine & Boat Show and then off to my open homes before the crowds arrive. This weekend Cronulla is on show and if this weather continues it will be the perfect weekend for Cronulla to shine.
Some of the events for the weekend include:
Over 100 stalls selling unique gifts, swimwear, fashion and homewares
Kids favourites including face painting, an animal farm & popular rides
Wellbeing Fair @ Monro Park, with local musicians providing background music
Cronulla Plaza Pavilion Stage entertainment, starting from 10am on Sat & Sun
And of course all of the shops, restaurants and cafe’s in the Mall and surrounds will be open business as usual.
The Sutherland Shire Marine & Boat Show is being held for the first time this weekend at Dunningham Park so don’t forget to check it out, jet skis, boats and boating accessories will be on show.
