Neighbourhood event series

Find out about the Neighbourhood Event Series - Love Living Local.

Over the past year the City unveiled a new events program designed to deliver targeted hyper-local events between November 2020 to April 2021. In total 12 events were delivered as part of the Neighbourhood Event Series; a collection of markets, pop-up performances and family fun days were created to increase local community connection and support to local business during the recovery phase.

The following events were included as part of the Neighbourhood Event Series 2020 - 2021. 

  • Superheroes Assemble!, Millet Park Innaloo
  • Cirque de Main Street, Main Street Osborne Park 
  • Christmas in the Square, Inglewood Town Square 
  • Vintage Carnival, Knight Avenue Reserve Yokine 
  • Adventurers Assemble!, Rannoch Reserve Hamersley
  • Gourmet on the Green, Des Hoffman Reserve Dianella

  • Scarborough Rummage, Scarborough Amphitheatre
  • Move it, Shake it!, Conway Reserve Balcatta
  • Bina Parkland Community Fun Day, Bina Parkland Balga 
  • Waves and Wellness, Disbrey Park Scarborough.

With the aim to improve connections throughout the neighbouring community, helping to form a sense of place through connection of local artist, local businesses and local places/spaces, this series was successful with 89% of surveyed attendees expressing it made them feel connected to the people in their community, and 90% of surveyed attendees confirming it made them proud of their local area. 

The City also funded events, cultural and art projects through its Community Arts and Events Fund (CAEF) and the newly developed Community Creativity Fund (CCF). For more information on arts and events grants, click here.

Due to the need for the City to deliver increased localised support, Sunset Veranda, the City’s independent FRINGE WORLD pop-up venue at Scarborough Beach and WAAPA in the Park where not delivered in 2021. The City continued to support and fund FRINGE WORLD partnerships and events through the above funding programs and sponsorship, including local artist support through the Community Creativity Fund for the development of new works for FRINGE WORLD 2021.
